Where the Money Grows and Anatomy of the Bubble (Wiley Investment Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hugely popular when it was first published in 1911, and regarded as a classic ever since, Where the Money Grows is an honest, humorous, and richly perceptive tour of Wall Street and its enduring customs, institutions, and characters. The Street, according to author Garet Garrett, is a world populated not only by bulls and bears, but also by "wolves," "hoodoos," and "invisibles." You'll meet them all in this immensely entertaining and revealing book.

Also included is a scintillating article, "Anatomy of the Bubble," originally published in the Saturday Evening Post. In piercing prose, Garrett unmasks the "debt" bubble and displays uncanny prescience. Debt, it would seem, can be every bit as dangerous as manias and other "irrational exuberance.

Synopsis:

A witty satire of the characters and landmarks that make up Wall Street. Originally published in 1911, this delightfully entertaining glimpse into the dark caverns of Wall Street colorfully chronicles how money circulates in the markets and all the characters it confronts along the way. A leading financial writer at the dawn of this century, Garet Garrett's penetrating insights are just as on the mark today as when first published.
