More tulips

A few interesting pages on the web about the Tulipmania:

A totally outlandish critic of Garber’s book by Doug French which tries (vainly) to explain the episode in monnetary terms.

An interesting (and very very long) post of L’Antisophiste on the matter (in French).

Some more by Doug French.

Finally, the article on wikipedia is well-worth checking.
