Devil Take the Hindmost: A History of Financial Speculation
Edward Chancellor (au). A lively & original history of stock market speculation from the 17th cent. to 1998. Traces the origins of the speculative spirit back to ancient Rome & chronicles its revival in the modern world: from the tulip scandal of 1630s Holland, to “stockjobbing” in London’s Exchange Alley, to the infamous South Sea Bubble of 1720. Here are brokers underwriting risks such as highway robbery; lottery tickets circulating as money; wise & unwise investors such as Benjamin Disraeli & Ivan Boesky. From the Gilded Age to the Roaring 20s, from the 19th-cent. railway mania to the crash of 1929, & through to Day Traders, this book tells a fascinating story of human dreams & folly through the ages.
