The term TULIPOMANIA originally
came from the period in the history of
the Netherlands during which demand
for tulip bulbs reached such a peak,
that enormous prices were charged for
a single bulb.
It took place in the first part of the
17th century, especially in 1636-37.
Now the term tulip mania (alternatively
tulipomania) is used metaphorically to
refer to any large economic bubble.
