Bob Carr, Former Premier of NSW & Former Australian Foreign Minister, joins Michael to talk about the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the major stock market crash that occurred 90 years ago in late October 1929 .
It started on October 24 (“Black Thursday”) and continued until October 29, 1929 (“Black Tuesday”), when share prices on the New York Stock Exchange collapsed.
