"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. A Keynesian and an institutionalist, Galbraith was a leading proponent of 20th-century American liberalism and progressivism. Galbraith was the author of 30 books, including "The Economics of Innocent Fraud", "The Great Crash: 1929", and "A History of Economics".Hide synopsis

There's good reason why this is a classic. It's a glorious description of the past & it applies exactly to 10/08 as if it had been written in the last few months. I'm sure it will apply equally well for the next financial melt-down since no matter how smart we are in formulating defensive laws, the ...
