- Program Description
On October 29, 1929 -- Black Monday -- the lifelong dreams of hundreds of thousands of stock market investors -- middle class secretaries, clerks, small businessmen -- vanished in a few hours, along with their hard earned savings. Decades later, the psychological trauma caused by the events of this day is still visible. This program examines the reasons behind the crash, whether the crash was predictable, and if it brought on the great depression of the 1930s.
