Forever blowing bubbles

Hyman Minsky's model of the credit cycle includes five stages: displacement, boom, euphoria, profit-taking, and panic. See this article "The Minsky Moment" from the New Yorker (February 4, 2008).

Paul Krugman has also written a nice piece, entitled "The Ice Age Cometh" on the evolutionary psychology behind irrational asset price bubbles.
