    This video chronicles the history of Wall Street, America's financial center since 1949, exploring the last half-century of economic history through the life of Jim Maguire. Born one year after the crash of 1929, Maguire started working on Wall Street in 1949, at the beginning of the longest "bull run" on record. Today, at the age of 73, Maguire is one of the New York Stock Exchange's most reputable and most active specialists. Through interviews with Maguire and other Wall Street traders and associates, the video tells the story of the worst and the best times in the U.S. financial markets, providing an informative overview of social, economic, political and technological changes that occurred on Wall Street.
