Hello all,

I'm new here. A senior completing his undergrad in Internation Finance at a wonderful liberal arts college where most other students don't even know that finance is offered.

I am currently starting a thesis on an original narrative of the 1987 "black monday crash." I have looked at other online resources but, as my advisor has pointed out, most published papers and books on the crash are either pointing out how smart the author is, how the crash was not the authors fault, or are written by people who don't understand finance and don't talk about all of the problems (granted I am only a few classes ahead of the latter category so I'm not in much of a place to talk).

The question I have for you, oh-holy-nuclear-phynance-community is this:

  • can any of you point me in the direction of some good, honest literature about it?

  • To those of you who were in the markets at that time or trading on that day, would you be willing to write a paragraph about your experience on that day?

  • anybody hiring someone with a lot of knowledge about black monday? <\sarcasm>



I really appreciate any responses and advice and have linked my email in my profile if anyone wants to reach out privately.
