Go For Broke examines historical moments of irrational confidence — when large groups of people get caught up in a moment that, because of their enthusiasm, expands into a bubble that eventually pops. The series details the causes of these expansions and their ensuing crashes, and the lessons we can learn from them.
In our first season, we’re examining the original dot-com bubble.
The way to combat noxious ideas is with other ideas. The way to combat falsehoods is with truth.
