Summary
The definitive account of the crash of 1987, a cautionary tale of how the U.S. financial system nearly collapsed
Summary
On Monday, October 19, 1987 the financial market fell 22.6 percent, making "Black Monday" the worst day in Wall Street history. In accessible, jargon-free prose, author Diana Henriques explains why regulatory agencies were caught unprepared as financial loomed. She explores its influence on silver trading; the increased significance of financial futures trading; and the introduction of both institutional investors and computer-driven trades. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
