Stock market history puts 2008 into relief, by Tom Stevenson

“That is why George Blakey’s ‘A History of the London Stock Market 1945-2007’ is an invaluable guide to anyone trying to use the past to make sense of the present and apply the lessons learned to make profitable predictions about the future.

The title of the book (published by Harriman House) is a little misleading because its scope is more ambitious than it sounds. It is actually a comprehensive year-by-year economic history of post-war Britain, viewed from the perspective of a stock market investor. It is, therefore, rather more significant than a simple rehearsal of the ups and downs of the market.”
