Program Description

When the Internet bubble burst in March 2000, unlucky investors watched more than $3 trillion of their money disappear. What spurred the incredible dot-com bull run on Wall Street? Was the public blinded by dreams of small fortunes and easy living or did the nation’s investment banks manipulate the IPO market and exploit public trust? FRONTLINE investigates the financial forces behind the unprecedented rise and seemingly overnight fall of the Internet economy.
