Лефевр описывает конторы биржевых букмекеров как очень популярные места, где игроки могли приобрести акции компаний, мгновенно узнавая новую цену на эти акции. Это была игра, в которой искусный оператор мог получить изрядную прибыль, a средний игрок проигрывался вчистую. Эта игра стала практически невозможной после того, как в 20-е годы закрылась последняя букмекерская контора. Сегодня вновь наблюдается возрождение торговли акциями «внутри дня»...

Chrysler: The Life and Times of an Automotive Genius (Automotive History and Personalities) Here is a richly detailed account of one of the most important men in American automotive history, based on full access to both Chrysler Corporation and Chrysler family historical records. Chrysler emerges as a man who loved machines, an accomplished mechanic who also had highly developed managerial skills derived from half a lifetime on the railroads, a man whose success came from his deep understanding of engineering and his total commitment to the quality of his vehicles. Vincent Curcio traces Chrysler's rise from a locomotive wiper in a Kansas roundhouse to the head of the Buick Division of General Motors, to his rescue of the Maxwell-Chalmers car company, which led to the successful development of the 1924 Chrysler--the world's first modern car--and the formation of Chrysler Corporation in 1925. Chrysler was quite different from the other auto giants--a colorful and expansive man, deeply involved in the design of his cars, a maverick in establishing his headquarters in New...
