Reseña del editor:

The 1920s and 1930s constituted an unforgettable epoch in Wall Street history. Brooks outlines the metaphor of the era's financial boom and bust: "Golconda, now a ruin, was a city in south-eastern India where, according to legend, everyone got rich ...a similar legend attached to Wall Street between the wars." He explores the creation and destruction of wealth in the life of Richard Whitney, the president of the New York Stock Exchange, whose own story runs parallel to the undulations of the stock market itself. It also examines the drama, ruthlessness, greed, and fantasy of the 1920s and 1930s that changed Wall Street forever. From the securities law governing the modern markets to the quixotic visions of the bullish investor, the book chronicles the timeless themes of Wall Street.

Contraportada:

"In this book, John Brooks--who was one of the most elegant of all business writers--perfectly catches the flavor of one of history's best-known financial dramas: the 1929 crash and its aftershocks. It's packed with parallels and parables for the modern reader." --Richard Lambert Editor-in-Chief, The Financial Times Praise for Once in Golconda "A fast-moving, sophisticated account ... embracing the stock-market boom of the twenties, the crash of 1929, the Depression, and the coming of the New Deal. Its leitmotif is the truly tragic personal history of Richard Whitney, the aristocrat Morgan broker and head of the Stock Exchange, who ended up in Sing Sing." --Edmund Wilson, writing in the New Yorker "As Mr. Brooks tells this tale of dishonor, desperation, and the fall of the mighty, it takes on overtones of Greek tragedy, a king brought down by pride. Whitney's sordid history has been told before.... But in Mr. Brooks's hands, the drama becomes freshly shocking." --Wall Street Journal "It's all there in Once in Golconda: the avarice of an era that favored the rich; and the later anguish of myriads of speculators doomed by a bloated market, easy credit, and their own cupidity and stupidity. The book, which is great reading, has a real message, especially for a generation of speculators that know neither the pangs and privations of a depression nor of blue chip stocks that drop fifty points in a single day's trading." --Saturday Review "Mr. Brooks has convinced me, absolutely, that Richard Whitney ranks in the highest pantheon of American symbols--like Lincoln and Bryan and Melville and Hemingway and Yellow Kid Weft, Buffalo Bill, and Horatio Alger ... and even Babe Ruth. In him, the upper-class con crested--and America's last chance to do it right the first time ended." --Harper's
