    Things that go pop

    Things that go pop.

    Iíve seen the expression elsewhere, but what can it mean as the title of a rather technical article on bubbles?
    Bubble itself can be defined as an unexpected crash preceded by a boom.

    Thank you

    Re: Things that go pop

    Well, yes that's the point. It's a play on words; I believe the writer is making a parallel between the ephemeral nature of such sudden economic booms and bubbles that suddenly burst.

    By the way, I came across the expression in an article not a book.
