Top winter vacations for The Mississippi Bubble occurred when French speculators attempted to fund French trade growth associated with Louisiana, INDIA, and China. The Mississippi Company was given exclusive rights to the trade but too many notes were issued by the Banque Royal and its bubble burst even before the venture was underway. The finance minister was blamed for the subsequent withdrawal of bullion from Paris and London markets to cover the losses, and was dismissed. The South Seas Bubble is a similar story, when the South Seas Company was set up to break the Spanish monopoly on South Seas trade. The mania that ensued produced the inevitable bubble burst. Much of the speculation was created when the company claimed it would take over the national debt of England, an unrealistic goal, if it were successful. Such claims by companies still excite speculators despite their lack of credibility. Top winter vacations 2016.
