Weekend Reads - Stock Market Bubble Edition
With Oil falling last year I posited the possibility that this decline could have some pretty dire consequences. While cheaper gas prices are a boon for consumers, what are the long term consequences of the 50% 7 month collapse in oil prices? Is this another bubble bursting that bears watching and will it lead to a stock market collapse? I think it would be naive not to explore this possibility.
Back in 1986, when celebrity nude photographs came in 16 pixels of black and white, a game called Bubble Bobble was released.
The game was a true hit and if you ever bore of slicing up fruit, or lining up fake candy all day long on your smart phone, I'm sure you can find a version of it online to play. Some 20+ years later the game still rings a bell in this old head of mine and it is a classic... we were just as good at making mind dumbing video games back then as we are today....... also the Bubble Theme seamlessly melds the stock market into focus. What better way to draw in some bearish eyes. "BUBBLE" forget the Bobble! Brilliant! I knew there was a reason I was writing about it.
