WALL STREET UNDER OATH

Here, for the layman, is the story of the investigation (1933-34) of ""Wall Street"" by the Senate Committee on Banking and Currency, which resulted in highly important banking and security legislation. The spotlight is focussed on such figures as J. P. Morgan and his partners, Mitchell and National City, Wiggin and Chase National Bank, Kahn, Dillon, Whitney, the Van Sweringens and others, revealing their transactions (and profits) in high finance, which, under the new laws, are no longer possible. The author's aim is presumably to point out that the legislation is working without the predicted disastrous results and to emphasize the reasons for maintaining future vigilance. Not limited to financial circles, well told for anyone interested in current history and development.
