The Great Game: The Emergence of Wall Street as a World Power. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Wall Street has been many things in its day. It began as the northern defensive perimeter of a wilderness trading post, at a time when money was limited to gold and silver, and wealth was enjoyed by few. Today, it is a metaphor for the global financial market, as wealth has spread far and wide. Yet Wall Street itself continues to grow and evolve as the world's centre of financial power. How Wall Street, money and wealth reached today's extraordinary high is told in this book covering 350 years of history. And John Steele Gordon seeks answers to Adam Smith's question as to the purpose of all the "toil and bustle".
About the Author: John Steele Gordon, author of two previous books on aspects of Wall Street's history, including Hamilton's Blessing, writes a popular column on American economic history for American Heritage. He also writes for the op-ed pages of the Wall Street Journal and USA Today and can be heard on Public Radio International's Marketplace. He lives in North Salem, New York.
