Where Are the Customers' Yachts?: or A Good Hard Look at Wall Street

Humorous and entertaining, this book exposes the folly and hypocrisy of Wall Street. The title refers to a story about a visitor to New York who admired the yachts of the bankers and brokers. Naively, he asked where all the customers' yachts were? Of course, none of the customers could afford yachts, even though they dutifully followed the advice of their bankers and brokers. Full of wise contrarian advice and offering a true look at the world of investing, in which brokers get rich while their customers go broke.

What the Critics Say

"Once I picked it up I did not put it down until I finished.... What Schwed has done is capture fully - in deceptively clean language - the lunacy at the heart of the investment business." (From the Foreword by Michael Lewis, best-selling author of Liar's Poker)

"[O]ne of the funniest books ever written about Wall Street." (Jane Bryant Quinn, The Washington Post)

"How great to have a reissue of a hilarious classic that proves the more things change the more they stay the same. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent." (Michael Bloomberg)

    "What is Old is New Again"

    The author has an amusing style. Much of his story of the shenanigans of Wall Street is as true today as it was back in the Roaring Twenties. Listening to this reading is enjoyable and educational. For serious investors and those with a general interest in investing, it is very helpful. From a Behavioral Finance point of view, I found it especially informative.
