Jacket Text

This book is a unique record of the people, deals and events that have driven the stock market since 1945.

Written in a down-to-earth, journalistic style, this book reads almost like a novel as it takes you through over 60 years of stock market history. Blakey provides a fascinating perspective on the movers and shakers - the winners, the losers, and the reasons why - giving a rare insight into the workings of the stock market, plus profiles of key players and the movements and effects of new, upcoming markets.

The book includes coverage of all the major economic and political developments that have influenced the market, as well as the individuals and corporations themselves. It provides an invaluable reference for anyone wishing to understand and anticipate current and future trends in the market.

This updated 6th edition now also covers the tumultuous period of 2007-2009.
