The name of the street derives from the fact that during the 17thcentury, it formed the northern boundary of the New Amsterdamsettlement. In the 1640s basic picket and plank fences denotedplots and residences in the colony. Later, on behalf of the West India Company, Peter Stuyvesant, inpart using …African slaves, led the Dutch in the construction of astronger stockade. By the time war had developed with the English,a strengthened 12 foot wall of timber and earth was created by 1653fortified by palisades. The wall was created, and strengthened over time, as a defenseagainst attack from various Indian tribes, New England colonists,and the British. In 1685 surveyors laid out Wall Street along thelines of the original stockade. The wall was dismantled by the British in 1699. In the late 18thcentury, there was a buttonwood tree at the foot of Wall Streetunder which traders and speculators would gather to tradeinformally. In 1792, the traders formalized their association withthe Buttonwood Agreement. This was the origin of the New York Stock Exchange. In 1889, theoriginal stock report, Customers' Afternoon Letter, became the TheWall Street Journal, named in reference to the actual street, it isnow an influential international daily business newspaper publishedin New York City. For many years, it had the widest circulation of any newspaper inthe United States, although it is currently second to USA Today. Itis owned by Dow Jones & Company.

by hogs that were getting attacked so they put a wall up to protect the hogs. Wall Street got its name from when in the 1600 a man named Peter Stuyvesant, got together with the colonist of the area and decided to build a more substantial fence or wall for the stockade that was there at the time. Th…ey originally had a picket fence type structure that surrounded the stockade. He then proceeded to build a 12 foot wall that ran from Pearl street which was at the shoreline, crossing Broadway and ending at the next shoreline which is now called Trinity Place. This being in the center of town and a spot everyone was familiar with it became a market place of sorts where people could buy and sell goods and slaves. ( Full Answer )

This is a simple question which cannot be answered in a few lines. Volumes have been produced to try to answer this question. Several factors lead to stock market crashes. Usually there is a speculative bubble, where the price of stocks exceeds their real value greatly. In such times, an irratio…nal demand drives the prices way up. When a critical point is reached, large institutional stock holders will usually dump their stock, as they see that they are getting a really good price for their stock. Such selling drives the prices back down. A wave of selling can occur then, like a flock of birds, everyone begins selling their stock because they see the prices coming down and want to get out before it hits bottom. It often happens that in a short time by this process the stock prices will fall so sharply that they are measurably less than their real value. Another major factor to Stock Market crashes is the money supply. If the money supply contracts, a number of things happen. A contraction, or reduction in the availability of money itself, will cause stock prices to go down. Not because the stock is worth less, but because money is less available and thus worth more. Such a contraction also creates other problems for stock markets. For instance, if an investment bank has a big overnight loan to pay back but finds itself short on cash because it has little cash on hand and no one is willing to make it further loans because of a low money supply, the bank will have to liquidate some of its assets in order to come up with the cash to pay back the loan. This may include the selling of large amounts of stock. If many banks have to do this all at once because there is suddenly a money shortage, all of that selling of stocks puts a great deal of downward pressure on the stock prices. The money supply problem described above best describes what happened a couple years ago in the US and Britain. Many banks failed because they were in a compromised position when they could not pay back money they had borrowed because they could not themselves borrow new money. This 'phenomenon' is created by "fractional reserve banking" whereby the supply of money is completely unregulated and subject to the behaviors of market participants. Those behaviors are governed by self interest and self preservation, not overall good or stability. This is a major flaw in the economic system and it inevitably leads to a boom and bust cycle. An over supply in money always leads to speculation and inflation of stock values until a peak is reached (BOOM), then large institutions begin to sell off and hoard their money, simply because it is natural to sell when the price is high, and natural to hoard the money because there are very few markets which are not overpriced and worth buying into. THis is the BUST part. It gets worse, when suddenly smaller institutions and retail investors find that their stock portfolios are worth much less. When their loans come due (overnight bank loans, mortgages, etc) which were made in the past with their portfolios as collateral, whoever is lending money may not be willing to refinance the loan or mortgage because there is no more collateral. Or maybe the lending companies themselves need the cash to cover their own debts, and are not lending more money regardless of collateral. In other words, stock market crashes and recessions are built in to the system. THis is actually not complicated, and can be understood with a little bit of studying. To better understand this ROOT CAUSE of all stock market crashes, you should go to google videos or some place and search "fractional reserve banking". Watch several videos on the subject and you will begin to pick up on the concept of how that works. This is truly the underlying cause to economic instability. Many people say that the recent crash was caused by the real-estate bubble. But a real estate bubble can only happen in the way that it did when Fractional Reserve banking allows banks collectively to lend out more money than they have. In pouring so much money out into the markets in the form of sub prime mortgage loans, the value of US real estate began to climb because of Increased demand from new home buyers taking advantage of cheap loans, money supply driven inflation, and resulting speculation. The rug was pulled out from underneath all of this when certain institutions reached their lending limits, and money supply driven inflation caused rising prices which impacted the bottom lines of households and businesses alike, affecting their ability to pay loans back. As the markets began to turn, institutional lenders began to try to shelter themselves from the inevitable bust by not refinancing or lending their money, and people had to sell their homes to pay back loans. With a glut of selling occurring, prices fell, and a lot of people lost a lot when they could not sell their homes for as much as they bought it for, and could not even pay the mortgage back fully from the sale of the home. This affected consumer spending in a major way, which had a broad effect on the economy. So you can see that the "real estate bubble" is just one step in the whole process which begins with fractional reserve banking. One should ask, "how is it even possible that a bank can make 'subprime' lending?" This is a good question, because it seems on the surface to be ridiculous. Why would a bank lend money at a lower cost than which they can borrow it? The answer is that through fractional reserve banking, a bank can in effect lend out more money than they actually have! Crazy? I think so. If you did that as an individual (loaned non existent money) that would be fraud somehow I think. But a bank has a "charter" which allows it to do just that! ( Full Answer )

The Wall Street Journal was founded on July 8th, 1889 by Edward Jones, Charles Bergstresser, and Charles Dow. It current is estimated to have a circulation of about 2.2 million copies and is primarily focused on economic and business news.
The Wall street Crash of 1929 occured because at that time, people were making money through shares and stocks. On October 24, 1929, stockholders started selling their stocks. Otherstockholders started to freak out and hastily put their stocks up for sale too. Well because there were lots of stock…s for sale and not too many buyers, prices got lower and lower until they were hardly worth anything at all. Then on October 29, also known as Black Teusday, almost 14 billion dollars were lost. People found themselves neck-deep in debts and banks closed down because people couln't pay back their loans. So that's how the Wall street crash of 1929 happened and opened up the great depression to America. ( Full Answer )

The overwhelming concensus among historians is a resounding yes . Germany was very severely affected by the Great Depression, with unemployment reaching over 25% in 1932.

In the 1928 general election the Nazis won …only 12 seats in the Reichstag and were regarded as a bizarre fringe party headed by a grotesque little man. In the 1930 elections the Nazis won 109 seats and in July 1932 they won 230. It was a complete sea-change and caught almost everyone unprepared. ( Full Answer )

You buy them through either a broker or a broker-dealer. A stock dealer is like a dealer in any other product: it maintains an inventory of the product and sells it to customers. A stockbroker arranges transactions between people who have stock they would like to sell, and people who wish to buy …it. This is the person you actually buy stock from. It is possible to own a brokerage that isn't a registered dealer, or a dealer that isn't a registered brokerage, but that's not how it's done anymore--the two functions are almost always combined into a "broker/dealer" company.

Essentially, it is a protest against the lack of corporate responsibility and burden of corporate power in the United States. The protesters do not approve of the ways modern, large corporations act and affect society. They packaged complex securities with subprime mortgages and backed them up wi…th credit default swops to the tune of 65 trillion dollars. This is the main reason why the financial markets had a near-meltdown in 2008 and the economy has been trying to recover ever since. Also, since that time the top 1% holds close to 70% of the US wealth. Internationally, the issues are a discontent with capitalism; according to the movement, bankers do not produce any products but only misuse the system and manipulate it to create money. In the United States specifically, there are numerous causes, like the lack of universal healthcare, the high unemployment rates and the massive differences between the rich and the poor (hence the name The Other 99%).
