causes of the great crash of 29 and its effects on the subsequent depression
  ritaer | Aug 24, 2021 |
This was a re-re-reading of the book. The positives of the book are a cogent analysis (toward the end) of the factors that could have led to the 1929 stock market crash, including problems with supply and demand and the surprisingly fragile nature of business. There's also a good narrative of the actual events of the crash. What can grate on a reader is the smarm that Galbraith trowels on, including a few shots at John Foster Dulles (Secretary of State at the time of writing, a lawyer at the time of the crash), and a not terribly cogent parallel to Alger Hiss, plus a great deal of sneering at those who'd made predictions regarding the market. And how would YOU have fared, Dr. Galbraith? So take the bad with the good. Still a good account of the event. ( )

Short and interesting story, focused on the stock market boom and crash. He tries to understand the reasons for both, but maybe there are not enough comparisons to other speculative booms for his explanations to be fully convincing. Interesting, nonetheless. Galbraith crams in a lot of atmosphere. He is also very opinionated and judgmental, which is fun to read. It is a bit frustrating that he describes stock price movements all in dollars, instead of in percentage point changes—without the denominator, it's hard to know the significance of a change. ( )

Sad to see how much Galbraith's prediction came true: that collective amnesia could eventually lead to another boom and bust almost as bad as the 1929 crash. ( )

Unbelievable similarity to recent events. This book should be on the reading list for school kids. Everyone should read it. ( )

Almost 80 years ago, a financial crisis led directly to an economic catastrophe. The Great Crash 1929 sets out the five routes by which one became the other. Not all have direct parallels today, but some do. All these years later, Galbraith's book is still essential reading.

To Catherine Atwater Galbraith
Første ord

The reissue of a moderately well-known book provides a temptation which, I have observed, very few authors resist. That is to tell, with that combination of deprecatory modesty and evident self-approval of which Somerset Maugham was perhaps the master, just how this good thing came to be done. And I have noticed that authors who are a trifle ashamed of these exercises in self-appreciation begin them with an apology and then go right ahead anyway. And perhaps we should.
(Introduction to 1961 edition).
Some years, like some poets and politicians and some lovely women, are singled out for fame far beyond the common lot, and 1929 was clearly such a year.

The sense of responsibility in the financial community for the community as a whole is not small. It is nearly nil.
(Introduction to 1961 edition).
In a community where the primary concern is making money, one of the necessary rules is to live and let live. To speak out against madness may be to ruin those who have succumbed to it. So the wise in Wall Street are nearly always silent. The foolish thus have the field to themselves. None rebukes them. There is always the fear, moreover, that even needful self-criticism may be an excuse for government intervention. That is the ultimate horror.
(Introduction to 1961 edition).
One of the oldest puzzles of politics is who is to regulate the regulators. But an equally baffling problem, which has never received the attention it deserves, is who is to make wise those who are required to have wisdom.
To the economist embezzlement is the most interesting of crimes. Alone among the various forms of larceny it has a time parameter. Weeks, months or years may elapse between the commission of the crime and its discovery. (This is a period, incidentally, when the embezzler has his gain and the man who has been embezzled, oddly enough, feels no loss. There is a net increase in psychic wealth.)
Clerks in downtown hotels were said to be asking guests if they wished the room for sleeping or jumping.
