Publisher's Summary

Humorous and entertaining, this book exposes the folly and hypocrisy of Wall Street. The title refers to a story about a visitor to New York who admired the yachts of the bankers and brokers. Naively, he asked where all the customers' yachts were? Of course, none of the customers could afford yachts, even though they dutifully followed the advice of their bankers and brokers. Full of wise contrarian advice and offering a true look at the world of investing, in which brokers get rich while their customers go broke, this book continues to open the eyes of investors to the reality of Wall Street.

Keep reading and finish this book for a good laugh!

Funny, informative, and generally light on material and wisdom. This book was definitely worth a read for a couple of good laughs. And the author is not wrong. The world needs Wall Street. But nobody, not even those on Wall Street, can truly know what they are doing when it comes to investing due to psychological, social, and political forces.

Very relevant today

Great insight from the 30's and have shifted my perspective of what I invest in opposed to speculate in
