Summary

"In The Mind of Wall Street, Levy takes a long and broad view of the rhythms of the markets and the economy, and his stories of past booms and busts, of financial chicanery and willful self-deception, evoke haunting comparisons with the world of Wall Street today. He also offers a provocative analysis of the spectacular Internet bubble, showing that we have yet to recover completely from our bout of "irrational exuberance." The current bear market, he argues, is likely to get worse before it gets better." "Most of us are in the stock market, but few of us understand how it really works. The Mind of Wall Street explains the market's hidden dynamics and is essential reading for all of us, whether we are active traders or simply modest contributors to our 401(k) plans. As these volatile and unnerving markets come to define so much of our net worth, Leon Levy's reflections, observation, and admonitions have never been more timely."--BOOK JACKET.
