LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Oct. 5, 2015) - The technology market today is reminiscent of that prior to the dotcom collapse, much to the delight and dismay of investors. Valuations have skyrocketed, as they did a decade and a half ago, and commentators are concerned the industry could be in line for another catastrophic fall. The new issue of The New Economy takes an in-depth look at whether we're experiencing the beginnings of another bubble, and, if so, whether it is going to burst anytime soon.

The New Economy report takes a look back at the dotcom crash of the new millennium, in which shareholders lost approximately $5trn and a great many businesses went bust. "If today's industry is to avoid a similarly painful collapse, the potential of new businesses is going to have to be realistically appraised based on market chances, rather than excitement over the technology they might offer", says The New Economy report.

Bubbles are a natural feature of the market, but the technology industry knows all too well just how damaging they can be if left unchecked. "While it seems unlikely that the likes of Facebook and Twitter are due a collapse in value, history has shown that previously valuable stocks can collapse unless there is a strategy in place to ensure profitability."

The new issue of The New Economy also separates the facts from the fiction about fracking and takes a look at how cities around the world have embraced smart technology, encouraging growth through inclusive social programmes and sustainable practices.

For any and all of these stories, as well as the latest on technology, energy, business and strategy, read the new issue of The New Economy, available in print, on mobile devices and online now.
