The most devastating stock market crash in the history of the United States;
Its from my favorite documentary by PBS – New York.

This particular part about Wall Street crash of 1929 is from episode 5 of the series with title: Cosmopolis
there are lots of archive photos, footages and drawings throughout the series and in my opinion it was great work done with finding them.

series website:

“Archival shoots took place at various historical and cultural institutions, including the New-York Historical Society, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Library of Congress, and focused on the filming of particularly rare or large-scale archival prints, lithographs, maps, and photographs”

So… in 1929 we traded 16 million shares as peak. Nowdays we trade that in 5 seconds.
Care to take a guess how big the next cash can be?

Andre Smith says:

The problem is not the collapse in prices, it's the ridiculous rise in prices in the first place.  Anyone watching the DOW these days?

Andrew Smith says:

Why are people who watch this video making fun of it?  This is a good video and we can learn from it.  We have had panics before. 1893, 1907, 1914, 1987, 2008…and we may experience another in the future.

Pretty funny to see these historians talking about the 20's and how similar they are to now. Its the little guy vs. the oligarchs. 

Jeremy Blake Nelson says:

"You can't crash if you never left the ground."

learn to rmember

Andre Smith says:

It was just a classic bubble and a classic burst.  Similar things have happened since, and will happen again.  Human memories are short, very short.  People have been diving into stocks again just a few years since the last bubble burst.

Great Video. "Speculative bubble" Like a runaway train, scary stuff! And now today, talk of a Global currency reset…
