The Wall Street Crash of 1929

Thursday, July 16th at 7pm

In 1929 most stock investors believed the market would rise forever. Economist Iriving Fisher proclaimed, "Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau." The October 1929 crash brought the Roaring Twenties to a shuddering halt. Unemployment would rise to 25% and the Great Depression would last 12 years. But not all investors would lose. Jesse Livermore nicknamed "The Boy Plunger" bet against the market, and earned 100 million dollars from the crash. Presenter: Rick Feingold teaches American Business History at Bergen Community College and holds an MBA from Penn State University.
