About This Book

Understand Black Monday in no time! Find out everything you need to know about this major financial crisis with this practical and accessible guide. On 19 October 1987, a number of factors came together to cause an unexpected drop in share prices on the New York Stock Exchange, with the Dow Jones ultimately losing 22.6% of its value in the course of a single day. This was the largest drop in the index's long history, but fortunately the real economy emerged relatively unscathed from the crash and a crisis of the magnitude of the 1929 Wall Street Crash was averted.
