Go For Broke

Thursday Mornings

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. From the meteoric rise of Netscape to the stunning fall of Pets.com, we’ll explore how venture capital money and stock market speculation, combined with the beginnings of Internet commerce, led to trillions of dollars created and lost — seemingly overnight.
