As China rapidly became the global stage for new investment opportunities, Chinas stock market reached its all time high when the Shanghai Composite Index peaked over 6000 points in October, 2007. However, the euphoria was not long. Soon after the high point, the Shanghai Composite Index dropped 40% in five months, causing the market bubble to bust five times as fast as what S&P 500 did in 2000. This project intended to explore the mysteries behind the formation of the stock market bubble, to identify the factors that contributed to the dramatic rise and fall of the Chinese Stock Market between 2006 and 2008 and to compare the Chinese stock market with that of the United States. The literature review includes examining and analyzing large quantities of professional journal articles to gather a wide range of expert opinions about this striking phenomenon.
