Summary

On October 29, 1929, more than 16 million stock shares were sold at the New York Stock Exchange, and by the end of November, investors had lost more than $100 billion in assets. With the crash, the prosperity of the Roaring Twenties came to a close and a dark era of financial despair dawned in the United States. The Stock Market Crash of 1929: The End of Prosperity is a revealing look at the events that helped usher one of the grimmest periods in American history.
