股票市场在经济大萧条时跌到历史最低点
193278

许多银行都把钱投资在股票市场,损失相当惨重。佐治亚州的一名银行人员塔普雷 (W.W. Tarpley) 回忆一大群担心一无所有的人涌进他的银行:「人们失去自己的房子,甚至毕生的积蓄。最让人难过的,是看到把先生留下来的一点保险金全部存进银行的寡妇。 

股票市场大崩盘也造成了经济大萧条。美国各地的人不但失去金钱,同时也失去了工作。企业纷纷倒闭关门,因为老板没有钱负担员工的薪水。股票价格仍继续滑落,并且在1932年月8日经济大萧条时,跌到史上最低点。许多人的一生因此有了剧烈的改变,但是只有少数人从中得到好处。


Many banks had also invested in the stock market and lost money. W.W. Tarpley, a bank officer in Georgia, remembered the mob of people who came to his bank, fearful of losing everything, " . . . people were losing their homes and some their savings of a lifetime. The saddest part of it was to see widows who probably had been left a little insurance and had put it all in the bank."

The crash triggered the Great Depression. People all over the country not only lost their money, but also they lost their jobs. Businesses closed because they could not afford to pay their workers. Stock prices continued to fall, and on July 8, 1932, the market hit its lowest point during the Depression. Many lives were drastically changed, but only a few for the better.
