Klaus Dorn
spekulative Kurssteigerungen die sich in Nichts auflösen
Explanation:
A difficult one.
A "bubble" is a sudden, speculative rise in security prices. A "burst" cannot be translated simply as a "Bruch" or "Explosion". When a bubble bursts itr disolves into nothing. That's what the above translation transmits.

geplatzte Träume, zerstörte Illusionen, geplatzte Blasen


Explanation:
Depends on your context if you can be a little more liberal in your translation and use s.th. like "geplatzte Träume" or "zerstörte Illusionen".
Of course, "geplatzte Blasen" is always an alternative as well, but the context would have to indicate if a term like geplatzte Blasen would be understood.
