Flaptekst van het boek van John Kenneth Gailbraith over de beurskrach van 1929

John Kenneth Galbraith, one of America’s foremost economists, follows the incredible economic rise and fall that lead to the great crash of 1929.

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. J.K. 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 human drama.
