John Kenneth Galbraith's now-classic account of the 1929 stock market
collapse, The Great Crash remains the definitive book on the most
disastrous cycle of boom and bust in modern times. The Great Crash
1929 examines the causes, effects, aftermath and long-term consequences
of America's infamous financial meltdown, showing how rampant
speculation and blind optimism sustained a market mania, and led to its
terrible downward spiral. Galbraith also describes the people and the
corporations at the heart of the financial community, and how they were
affected by the disaster.
With its depiction of the 'gold-rush fantasy' ingrained in America's psychology, this penetrating study of human greed and folly contains lessons that are still vital today - and are now more relevant than ever. 'Lively and highly readable' Financial Times 'Galbraith is a considerable writer - admonitory, ironic, patrician, funny' Guardian 'The definitive work on the subject' Daily Mail 'A book you will read at a single sitting' Prospect 'One of the most engrossing books I have ever read' Daily Telegraph John Kenneth Galbraith (1908-2006) was a Canadian-American economist.
