An authoritative "biography" of one of history's great financial crises with enduring lessons about contemporary finance

In this newly-revised second edition, offering 50% entirely new material, The Panic of 1907: Heralding a New Era of Finance, Capitalism, and Democracy, delivers a groundbreaking examination of one of the most consequential crises in financial history. Deftly weaving historical evidence, insightful analysis, and compelling narrative, The Panic of 1907 explains how and why a financial panic unfolds, with lessons that can be applied to our understanding of present-day financial and monetary systems. In the book, you'll find:
* The reasons why, despite today's stronger monetary regime and risk-mitigation tools, our modern institutions are not immune to future crises
* Explanations about the development of the United States' Federal Reserve System, which was created in 1913 in direct response to the Panic of 1907
* An engaging and entertaining account of an innately fascinating period in financial and economic history, with remarkable leaders and a gallery of rogues

An indispensable tale that belongs on the shelves of anyone with an interest in American or financial history, The Panic of 1907 is an expert retelling of one of the most important, but least well-known crises of the last 200 years.
