乔治.玛哈列司 (George Mehales) 1929年的股票市场崩盘中失去一切,包括他的餐厅。他说:「192910月的第一天让我觉得我很富有,然后我彻底完蛋了,我什么都没有了。」玛哈列司是一个住在南卡罗莱那州的希腊移民,他是许多想趁着1920年代经济快速成长大赚一笔,但是又没经验的投资人当中的一个。股票市场可以是很好的投资管道,但是风险也很大,尤其是当你对股票瞭解不深,就得负担更大的风险。

股票大崩盘 (Great Crash) 影响了每一个人的生活,就连那些没有买股票的人也无法幸免。人们跑到银行把存款提出来,因为他们担心银行会赔掉所有的钱。

George Mehales lost everything in the stock market crash of 1929, including his restaurant. "The first day of October in 1929 made me feel like I was rich . . . (then,) I was wiped out . . . I had nothing left." Mehales, a Greek immigrant who lived in South Carolina, was just one of many inexperienced investors who hoped to get rich quick in the rapidly growing market of the 1920s. The stock market can be a good place to invest some of your money, but it is also risky, especially if you do not know much about stocks.

The Great Crash affected everyone, even those who had not bought stocks. People ran to their banks to get their savings, fearing the banks would run out of money.
