Mark Skousen, editor of Forecasts & Strategies, has been collecting ancient proverbs, rare financial books and pearls of Wall Street wisdom since he started writing his award-winning newsletter in 1980. Now in its new third edition, his classic work, The Maxims of Wall Street, is full of hard lessons and biting humor of financial gurus, brokers, plungers and peacocks of today and yesteryear. Dr. Skousen's favorite tales and sayings of J.P. Morgan, Ben Graham, Joe Kennedy, Hetty Green, J. Paul Getty and Jesse Livermore, as well as modern-day legends Warren Buffett, John Templeton and Jack Bogle, will make history come alive in this delightful reminiscence down Wall Street.
