The great stock market Crash of 1929 was a cataclysmic event in the financial world. Over the years, much has been written about this black period in financial history, and references are made to it every time modern-day stock markets tumble. Seventy-five years later, the Crash is still surrounded by its own mythology, and holds a special fascination for both business and general readers. One popular perception is that the Crash of 1929 was a uniquely American event. But even then, the Canadian economy was inextricably linked to the fortunes of its southern neighbour. Gold Diggers of 1929 is the only book to fully explain the ramifications of the Crash north of the border, and to point out that its effects were far more catastrophic and long-lived for the fledgling Canadian economy. It explores the uniquely Canadian cast of characters, economic conditions, causes, and consequences. This re-release of a Canadian classic coincides with the 75th anniversary of the 1929 Crash, as well as the 25th anniversary of the book's original publication.
