Who Says Wall Street is Boring?

It covers information on weird stock certificates, unusual stock market correlations, celebrity stock indexes, the stock that went from $5.5 million a share to 12 cents, the Hemline Index, and more. There is a special section at the end that includes three chapters on investment bubbles from Charles Mackay's book, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, from 1841.
