 The Stock Market Crash of 1929

 

       It was the most devastating stock market crash in the history of the whole United States of America. It was considered a fallout because it took twelve years to over come this bad depression. The crash signaled a twelve year depression that would affect the western industrialized countries. The stock market crashed on Tuesday, October the 24th and occured over a period of five days. This day is now known as ''Black Tuesday''. On this day the Dow jones industrial average hits a new high of 381.2. The stock market crash ushered in the great depression.

     The crash effected the investors buying borrowed money from stock brokers. In which case those brokers went to the banks for that money. Then the stocks failed and when the investors needed a default, all the money was lost.

     The crash slowed down the economy and items that we usually buy for our home, car, and entertainment went down in production.

     The crash sent the rich to the streets and unemployment increased (Bierman).
