  • Entertaining account of the market mania and resulting historic crash of 1929.

  • Tells a relevant and timely story of over-investment and market frenzy, and why financial bubbles since then have always been compared to the Great Crash.

  • Traces the market fluctuations of the time, showing how the crash evolved and helped ignite a full economic depression.

Quotes:

As a protection against financial illusion or insanity, memory is far better than law.

A roaring boom was in progress in the stock market and, like all booms, it had to end.

But now, as throughout history, financial capacity and political perspicacity are inversely correlated.
