Overview

The South Sea Bubble by Robert Wernick

At the end of the seventeenth century, English investors discovered that a piece of paper – a share or a bond - could be as profitable as holdings in land and far less cumbersome to administer. Furthermore, while land was taxed, profits from these new securities were not, a situation that inevitably led to abuse. In this essay, New York Times bestselling author Robert Wernick traces the remarkable history of the South Sea Bubble, one of the greatest financial scandals of all time.

About the Author

Salvador Dali once called him the stupidest man in the world; Cary Grant described him as the smartest. New York Times bestselling author Robert Wernick is certainly talented. He has penned more than a dozen books and has contributed to a host of magazines, ranging from Life to Vanity Fair. His topics are as varied as the birth of town planning in the Mesolithic Age to a soul-baring Ferris-wheel ride with Marilyn Monroe to a climb up Mount Sinai. He has made his home in Manhattan, Algiers, a ranch in the Nevada desert, San Francisco, the Basque coast, the Golden Isles of Georgia, and, most recently, the 14th Arrondissement of Paris.

The ancient cat River stands and pads to her. "Oceanstar can no longer fulfill this clans needs. Your loyalty touches my heart so with the powers of StarClan, I now pronounce you RavineStar of RipplingClan." Nine of RavineStar's dead loved ones give her her lives. "StarClan watches over you and your Clan."
