Fact of the Day:
Jonathan Swift is credited with affixing the label "bubble" to a stock price that far exceeded its economic value in a poem written in December 1720, just after the stock price of the South Sea Co. tumbled. The last stanza read: "The Nation too, too late will find/ Computing all their Cost and Trouble/ Directors Promises but Wind/ South Sea at best a mighty Bubble." ]Source[
