Left Business Observer is an 8-page more-or-less monthly newsletter on economics and politics in the U.S. and the world at large. LBO, founded in 1986, is edited by Doug Henwood.
Wall Street was first published in hardcover by Verso in 1997, and in paperback in 1998. Since Verso chose not to reprint it when it went out of stock, the rights reverted to the author in March 2005.
It’s now available for free download on the web, under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs license. It may be recirculated freely for noncommercial use only. No alterations are allowed, and the author must be credited.
The book is a definitive overview of the financial markets and their economic and political role.
