Book Title: Lombard Street A Description of the Money Market: A Description of the Money Market
Publisher: Start Publishing LLC
Author: Walter Bagehot
Bagehot was one of the first writers to describe and explain the world of international and corporate finance, banking, and money in understandable language. The book was in part a reaction to the 1866 collapse of Overend, Gurney and Company, located at 65 Lombard Street, from which the title draws its name. Bagehots description, and knowledge is timeless and a must for anyone who wants to understand our money market and economy.
