Spontaneous copulation can certainly cause (rational) exuberance.

Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-.

Oh, forget it. It's not even fun any more. Back under the rocks they crawled out from. The Shrub has cost so-called conservatives at least a generation. Good riddance.

Spontaneous copulation can certainly cause (rational) exuberance.

It is only 'rational' moments before the moment is consumated.

As this study suggests, what happens afterwards is not always rational.

Anybody have a guess what that 10k would be if a guy hit the dot com and tech stocks perfectly through the '90s?

Hindsight, and perfect in/out timing of course.  Probably impossible to figure given the vast araay of choices and the timing that would have been required.

30 Billion?  More?
