Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital: The Dynamics of Bubbles and Golden Ages is a nonfiction book by Carlota Perez that seeks to academically treat the subject of financial bubbles in modern economies by analyzing the emergence of long term technology trends. The model articulated by Carlota Perez is applied to technology trends over the past three centuries with examples such as: the age of steam and railways, the age of steel and electricity, mass production and the automobile and the current information/knowledge society.
A Foreign Affairs review said "A broad-sweep 'think piece' in the Schumpeterian spirit, this book discusses the relationship between major technological innovations and financial booms and busts." 
An Economist article summarizes here work, "In her book, “Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital”, Ms Perez traces five boom-and-bust cycles of technological innovation: the industrial revolution; steam and railways; steel, electricity and heavy engineering; oil, cars and mass production; and information technology and telecommunications.
