Summary Wall Street and the stock market were major symbols of the 1920's, and the great crash was considered the end of that era. It is surprising, therefore, that little intensive study has been given to the bull market of the period. Several books have been written on the crash itself but none before has dealt with events leading up to it. The era of the 1920's was one of economic growth, and not merely tinsel and ballyhoo.
Contents The Wall Street point of view : 1920 -- An age of innovation and growth -- The business of government -- Investors, speculators, bankers, and rogues -- The exterior threat : Insull, Kreuger, and the Van Sweringens -- The magic of leverage -- The making of the giant bull -- Problems and perspectives : 1928 -- The crash -- Lost opportunities.
