Extraordinary Popular Delusions & the Madness of Crowds - Paperback

[EAN: 9780517539194], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Harmony Books, New York, New York, U.S.A.], MASS HYSTERY PSYCHOLOGY EXTRAORDINARY POPULAR DELUSIONS AND MADNESS OF CROWDS CHARLES MACKAY ANDREW TOBIAS, History|Historical Geography, Philosophy|General, Psychology & Psychiatry|General, Psychology & Psychiatry|Industrial & Organizational Psychology, Psychology & Psychiatry|Social Psychology, Psychology & Psychiatry|Statistics, Reference|Curiosities & Wonders, Reference|Dictionaries, Social Science|Popular Culture, Body, Mind & Spirit|Occultism, Very-good+, clean copy. NO remainder marks or clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. Pages show tanning. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Illustrated. 724 pages. Covers show light wear (NO tears). Synopsis First published in 1841, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is often cited as the best book ever written about market psychology. This Harriman House edition includes Charles Mackay's account of the three infamous financial manias - John Law's Mississipi Scheme, the South Sea Bubble, and Tulipomania.Between the three of them, these historic episodes confirm that greed and fear have always been the driving forces of financial markets, and, furthermore, that being sensible and clever is no defence against the mesmeric allure of a popular craze with the wind behind it.In writing the history of the great financial manias, Charles Mackay proved himself a master chronicler of social as well as financial history. Blessed with a cast of characters that covered all the vices, gifted a passage of events which was inevitably heading for disaster, and with the benefit of hindsight, he produced a record that is at once a riveting thriller and absorbing historical document. A century and a half later, it is as vibrant and lurid as the day it was written.For modern-day investors, still reeling from the dotcom crash, the moral of the popular manias scarcely needs spelling out. When the next stock market bubble comes along, as it surely will, you are advised to recall the plight of some of the unfortunates on these pages, and avoid getting dragged under the wheels of the careering bandwagon yourself. Annotation: Originally published in 1841, this is a serious but frequently hilarious study of mass madness, crowd behavior, and human folly.
