OCTOBER 24, 2004 IS THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE STOCK MARKET CRASH AND
THE START OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION OF THE 1930's
We found this September
6, 1929 "Financial and Business" Section of the Philadelphia Inquirer
behind an old mirror.
It contains many warnings of a stock market crash. Why wasn't the public listening? Are we right to think a depression won't happen again?
This Fall, will there be any public commemoration of the crash and the ensueing decade-long depression?
