  3. Hello Sold At The Top,

    My name is Jesse Colombo and I’m the creator of, a website recently built to warn about currently-expanding economic bubbles, including what I call the “CCC Aches” Bubbles: China, Commodities, Canada, Australia, College (U.S.), Healthcare (U.S.), Emerging markets & Social media as well as the post-2008 Northern and Western European housing bubble.

    I’ve been a bubble blogger since early 2004, when I built a fairly popular website called “Stock Market Crash!” for the purpose of warning about the U.S. housing and banking bubble.

    I’m looking to introduce myself to fellow bubble bloggers and establish relationships for the purpose of sharing information on this important topic. I’m a great fan of the Paper Economy Blog - keep up the great work!

    Would you believe that another housing bubble is brewing across Northern & Western Europe as we speak? It’s as if the world hasn’t learned a thing from the U.S. housing bubble and Global Financial Crisis.

    Looking forward to communicating with you,

    Jesse Colombo
