1907 crisis still a valuable case study
The financial crises of 1907 and 2008 share uncanny similarities, including serious credit and liquidity concerns, and invoking anti-Wall Street sentiments. In 1907,
financier J.P. Morgan settled and ended the crisis, reassuring depositors and investors that their savings and equity holdings were secure.
Authors Bruner and Carr explain why the 1907 panic is a valuable case study for understanding other monetary crises. GetAbstract believes that real life drama fans will love this book.

Incisive and vehement
With scimitar-sharp wit and sledgehammer-subtle analysis, William Bonner
and Lila Rajiva study human nature and give just about everyone a good tongue-lashing. Funny and thought-provoking, this treatise is a joy to read, even if you don’t agree with everything the authors say.
Though highly enjoyable and readable, this study tackles a lot of material and is therefore at times quite vehement. Even so, getAbstract recommends it to anyone hoping to understand human behaviour in business and politics.
