Asset price crash

An asset price crash is a sudden and usually unexpected fall in the price of a particular asset class. Crashes usually follow asset price inflations. Examples of asset price crashes include Dutch tulips in the 1600s, Japanese metropolitan real estate and stocks in the early 1990s, and internet stocks in 2001.
