    More crazy was that the multicolored ones that brought the most money were formed by disease that did not pass on genetically. Meaning they sold the potential offspring contracts from diseased flowers for alot of money, while not being sure they would actually become multicoloured.

  37. Danny Duchamp

    Danny Duchamp3 months ago

    This video ignores the cause of the crash entirely. The high tulip prices wouldn't necessarily have counted as a bubble unless the tulips themselves weren't valued enough to justify it. In 1637 the Dutch parliament passed a law declaring that all the tulip futures contracts would become options contracts. That means that someone who signed a tulip futures contract could decide at any time they didn't want the tulip after all could get out of the contract and keep their money minus a small fee. Obviously an option contract is worth less than a contract where both parties are required to uphold their end of the bargain, so the tulip market collapsed. I don't know why Adam omits this. Is he afraid of making the 1600's Dutch government look bad? Why does he care?

    I have seen investment banks buy stock in a company, then buy futures contracts in that stock, and in the commodity that the company makes, to inflate the price of the stock. The games get more complicated. But the spirit remains.

    If anyone is hyping something up and saying you need to get in on "this" so you can profit too, then it's they who are the ones to profit. You're hope to do the same as him and hype it up even more so you can sucker someone else into it.
