Several years later he lamented, “What seems really strange now is that I could make a prediction of that kind in all seriousness, yet not have the sense to realize the dangers to which I continued to subject the Account’s capital” (Benjamin Graham, Benjamin Graham: The Memoirs of the Dean of Wall Street, edited by Seymour Chapman [New York: McGraw-Hill, 1996], 259). In mid-1929, the equity in the “Account” was a proud $2,500,000; by the end of 1932, it had shrunk to a mere $375,000.
