Jim Grant's Talk at Google

Jim Grant of Grant's Interest Rate Observer recently held a talk at Google.  His presentation focused on his book entitled, The Forgotten Depression of 1921: The Crash That Cured Itself.

He looks at high unemployment, a collapse in commodity prices, surge in bankruptcies and a sharp decline in stock prices.  His talk recreates the scene and deconstructs the situation.

Grant talks about how all of his Wall Street brethren spend every heartbeat focused on accumulating as much money as possible, but very few of them think much about the actual thing they're constantly amassing.

Embedded below is Jim Grant's talk at Google:
