This is from 2010... does anything come to mind in 2021? 

Bitcoin? Tesla? Tech stocks in general?

1. Sharp increases in the price of an asset like real estate or shares

2. Great public excitement about said increases

3. An accompanying media frenzy

4. Stories of people earning much money, causing envy among people who are not

5. Growing interest in asset class among the general public

6. ”New era” theories to justify unprecedented price increases

7. A decline in lending standards
