I have lost track of how many times over the years I have either reread this book in its entirety or dipped into it to refresh my memory of its wisdom.´´-From the Foreword by Peter L. Bernstein author of Against the Gods. First published in 1873, this classic book is a timeless excursion through Lombard Street, the original district of finance and the birthplace of the money market. Written by esteemed British economist and historian Walter Bagehot, it delivers observations, insights, and truths that ring as true today as they did more than a century ago. Acclaim for Lombard Street. ´´Walter Bagehot was a great economist and a great writer-though there is a question as to which was the greater. Lombard Street, first published in 1873, is more than ever timely in the age of Asian financial flu, Long-Term Capital Management, problems in Russia, Brazil, and on the horizon elsewhere. Central bankers and finance ministers such as Alan Greenspan and Robert Rubin in the U.S., along with leading IMF officials should each sleep with a copy under his or her pillow.´´-Charles P. Kindleberger author of Manias, Panics and Crashes ´´The briefest and truest way of describing Lombard Street is to say that it is by far the greatest combination of economical power and economical delicacy that the world has ever seen.´´-Walter Bagehot The English precursor to Wall Street, London´s Lombard Street is the original district of finance and the birthplace of the money market. Fast-paced and highly-charged, it is a hotbed of financial activity whose impact is felt not just nationally, but globally. Though similar in many ways to its American counterpart, this ´´unequalled fund of floating money´´ nevertheless possesses a character all its own, the essence of which was brilliantly captured more than a century ago in Lombard Street. The chef d´oeuvre of Walter Bagehot, Lombard Street began as a series of articles the esteemed essayist and financial advisor had written for the Economist during the 1850s. First published in book form in 1873, it is a vivid description of the money market that seamlessly brings together theoretical analyses, historical anecdotes, and incisive commentary on sociology, politics, and the Street´s various personalities. Sharing his invaluable insights and unique observations, Bagehot touches on everything from the mechanics of deposit banking within a fractional reserve system to the nature of foreign deposits in Britain. Along with a clear explanation of why economic growth and rising living standards are dependent upon a well-managed financial system, he offers straightforward guidelines for the function of lender-of-last resort; a penetrating look at the consequences of uncontrolled credit and speculation; and an in-depth examination of the role of the exchequer in the money market that includes a stimulating analysis of the interaction between the government´s fiscal operations and the functioning of the Bank of England, the commercial banks, and the money market. Perhaps most importantly, Lombard Street features Bagehot´s prescription for crisis management, which after nearly 150 years, remains the formula of choice for containing-and curtailing-financial crises. Filled with descriptions of Lombard Street that still ring true today, this jewel of a book has withstood the test of time to become a true investment classic-one that will appeal as much to the readers of today as it did to those of years ago. Die Lombard Street ist der Geburtsort der Finanzwirtschaft, Vorgänger und Vorbild der Wall Street. Für alle finanzhistorisch Interessierten ist dieser Reprint des Klassikers von 1873 aus der Reihe ?Wiley Investment Classics? Lesevergnügen und Quelle aufschlußreicher Einblicke zugleich: Ein Überblick über das Aufblühen des Bank- und Kreditsystems zu Bagehots Zeiten, dessen Analysen und kritische Anmerkungen in vielen Fällen bis in unsere Zeit hinein gültig geblieben sind.
