A Book Recommendation
This is a great book. Written in the fifties, it describes the idiocy and irresponsibility that led up to the 1929 stock market crash. Despite coming from one of the greatest economists of all time, it is a great read, and easily accessible to anyone.
It's available from Amazon for about $11.00. If you want to know more about this era, it's a good place to start, as it not only lays out the facts of the crash, but gives wonderful insights about the state of mind that allowed it to happen.
