Its origins stretch back into the murky, arcane world of 19th century maritime trade. Today, it is the engine that propels the global economy. MODERN MARVELS presents the incredible story of the stock exchange through interviews with traders and financial experts, rare footage and photos and a behind-the-scenes tour of the trading floors and back rooms where trillions of dollars change hands. Harold Geneen, former head of ITT, offers a first person view of the growth of the exchange where he first came to work as a clerk in 1929. John Prestbo, markets editor of The Wall Street Journal traces the history of the markets from their infancy to today, and reveals how they survived the Crash of '29, emerging from the global depression stronger and more influential than before. From legendary figures like J.P. Morgan and Jay Gould to the global, computerized network of brokers today, this is a fascinating journey through the history and technology of the money engine the STOCK EXCHANGE.
