Over a period of 10 years, Koornwinder was able to make correctly, with one exception, all predictions about price drops higher than 10%, always using one and the same model.

In January 1990, she warned some ten institutional investors of a crisis in Japan, and just before the burst of the internet bubble, on February 10 [2000], she gave a talk at an Amsterdam convention about the risks of using conventional models for asset management of retirement funds.
