IN THIS SUMMARY

The American securities industry has a long and varied history that has come to symbolize the best and the worst of American finance. Wall Street is a wide-ranging chronicle of how a loose association of late-18th century traders, meeting on the sidewalks and coffee houses of lower Manhattan, evolved into a billion-dollar computer-driven international force. Tracing many themes-especially the relationship between finance and government- Geisst also provides a detailed commentary on the history and development of the entire U.S. economy.
