Public Opinion and The Stock Market.
This pamphlet is from a series of addresses Whitney gave to various business associations whilst president of the New York Stock Exchange in the 1930s. Their purpose was to defend the old practices, including short selling, and to exculpate the New York Stock Exchange from any criticism for the crash. In this address to the Boston Chamber of Commerce given on 29th January 1931 Whitney discusses the human face of the exchange and his insights into investor behaviour.
Pamphlet; 8vo (22x 14.5 cm); original printed grey wrappers, removed from a larger binding, with resultant holes and residue to spine edge; 18, pp.
