Fast-paced and highly-charged, it is a hotbed of financial activity whose impact is felt not just nationally, but globally. The chef doeuvre of Walter Bagehot, Lombard Street began as a series of articles the esteemed essayist and financial advisor had written for the Economist during the 1850s. First published in book form in 1873, it is a vivid description of the money market that seamlessly brings together theoretical analyses, historical anecdotes, and incisive commentary on sociology, politics, and the Streets various personalities. Perhaps most importantly, Lombard Street features Bagehots prescription for crisis management, which after nearly 150 years, remains the formula of choice for containing - and curtailing - financial crises.
