You are to research the rise and fall of the early days of the World Wide Web. In 1993, Tim Berners-Lee created the Web and the bubble began. The bubble describes the amazing stock run of Internet companies, when their values soared to unbelievable and what were thought to be unattainable heights from 1993 to 2001.
Suddenly, the overpriced giants crashed. Individual investors lost millions and the NASDAQ (the stock exchange for most Internet companies) came tumbling down. What happened? Why did it happen? What could have been done to stop this unsafe surge in valuation?
Your objective is to research this bubble and outline the basics of this extraordinary time. Which companies made the most? Which companies lost the most?
