Lessons from Wall Street's 'Panic of 1907'

Lessons from Wall Street's 'Panic of 1907' | AP US History | Scoop.it
On Oct. 17, 1907, panic began to spread on Wall Street after two men tried to corner the copper market. In the months preceding the panic, the stock market was shaky at best; banks and securities firms were contending with major liquidity problems. By mid-October, Wall Street was paralyzed; for days, there were runs on several large banks.
Jeff Michels's insight:

This is a great place to start when looking at Economic bubbles.  Think about the similarities to the panic of 1873 and 1893...  What do they all have in common?  Why do we always forget?
