Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper now protected in a removable mylar sleeve.
From the cover: Wall Street is more than a symbol of the power of money: it is a place, a community, a focus of psychological as well as economic forces. To understand what happens there and the intricate world of finance of which it is the centre, one must know how it works in practice. Published originally in the United States, the book has been revised for this first British edition. Finance, like advertising, was imported to America from Britain before developing its own powerful and independent roots in the new soil. The author has added a special note in which he describes both the differences and the similarities between Wall Street and the London Stock Market from which it derives.”
