Book Title: The Great Game: the Emergence of Wall Street as a World Power

Author: John Steele Gordon

Book Description:

Finance is a field that changes constantly, as the technology of making money evolves.  Perhaps the most important determinant of these changes is human innovation.  This book traces the beginnings of these processes of financial innovation in our country.  As a scholar of finance, I find it amazing how many of today's financial customs evolved from the earliest days of our country.  The author provides great insight into this evolutionary process.
