Lombard Street: A Description of the Money Market

By Walter Bagehot
Free
Book Description

"The English precursor to Wall Street, London's Lombard Street is the original district of finance and the birthplace of the money market. Fast-paced and highly-charged, it is a hotbed of financial activity whose impact is felt not just nationally, but globally." "The chef d'oeuvre of Walter Bagehot, Lombard Street began as a series of articles the esteemed essayist and financial advisor had written for The Economist during the 1850s. First published in book form in 1873, it is a vivid description of the money market that seamlessly brings together theoretical analyses, historical anecdotes, and incisive commentary on sociology, politics, and the Street's various personalities." "Perhaps most important, Lombard Street features Bagehot's prescription for crisis management, which after nearly 150 years, remains the formula of choice for containing--and curtailing--financial crises"--Description borrowed from the dustjaket of a 1999 publication of this work by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
