Can you recommend any really good economic history books written by gifted storytellers?I would nominate Eyewitness to Wall Street: 400 Years of Dreamers, Schemers, Busts and Booms by David Colbert. A remarkable read. Although there are important notes and historical tidbits that will knock your socks off, the body of the text is composed of contemporary accounts of events as they were unfolding, taken from diary entries, journalist reports, and other sources -- hence the name. Marvelous reading, just the stuff, with a particularly long and enlightening section on the 1800s. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys METAR.Dave
