The Great Crash 1929
The classic study of that disaster
No account of the financial insanity of 1929 has been issued in a form at once so readable, so humorous and so carefully authenticated as this classic book, in which Professor Galbraith examines the 'gold-rush fantasy' in American psychology and describes its dire consequences. The Florida land boom, the operations of Insull, Kreuger and Hatry, and the fabulous Shenandoah Corporation all come together in this penetrating study of concerted human greed and folly. From the cold figures of Wall Street the author wrenches a truly tense drama.
