Interesting story of a good man trying to make his fortune on the Stock Market in 1600's Amsterdam. This story shows the stakes involved, the build up to a "scheme", the hopes, deceits, betrayals, friendships and intrigue that are involved in daily Stock Market trading.
It also shows the fall out of a completed scheme, both the good and bad sides, and how it effects everyone involved.
A very enjoyable & interesting story with good characters and an intriguing story to tell. It's quite appropriate for getting an understanding of today's stock market, too...of how the deals go through, of how schemes are played out, of how people win & lose and the economy is manipulated.
