The panic of 1873, the crash of 1929, the bull market of 1990s, the foreclosure crisis of 2007–8. The history of Wall Street is a series of speculative ups and crashing downs.

Wright, professor at Augustana College, to discuss some of the pivotal moments in banking history and how they’ve created a cyclical economic narrative.
