Abstract

Applying the methods of Phillips, Shi and Yu (2015, PSY), while considering the possibility of non-stationary volatility (Harvey et al. 2016), evidence of exuberance in share prices is confirmed for the South Sea Company, and established for a number of other 18th century financial organisations, for the first time. The timings of these bubble episodes show signs of possible contagion.
