The Crash of 1929 . American Experience . WGBH | PBS

The unbounded optimism of the Jazz Age and the shocking consequences when reality finally hit on October 29th, ultimately leading to the Great Depression.

Excellent hour-long programme that explores the before, the during and the after of the 1929 Crash. Worth knowing about :-)

Strange Random Wall Street Quote:

“After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: It never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It always was my sitting.” – Jesse Livermore
