DESCRIPTION

The panic of 1873, the crash of 1929, the bull market of 1990s, the foreclosure crisis of 2007—8. The history of Wall Street is a series of speculative ups and crashing downs. Join us for a conversation moderated by Mark Gongloff, chief financial writer of the Huffington Post, featuring historians Steven Fraser, Columbia University, author of Every Man a Speculator (HarperCollins, 2005); Julia Ott, The New School, author of When Wall Street Met Main Street (Harvard University Press, 2011) and Robert E. Wright, Augustana College, author of One Nation Under Debt (McGraw-Hill 2008). The panel will explore the cyclical nature of New York's economic history through dramatic events and reappearing themes, and extract lessons for the present and the future. Presented in partnership with the Museum of American Finance.
