OLIVER M. W. SPRAGUE, Harvard, 1937


Lessons from the Panic of 1907. - Smartpredictor

The authors quoted Oliver W. Sprague, a Harvard professor writing in 1908, as stating that "The position of the banks was far from desperate, yet they had already entered the fatal and discreditable path of suspension, paying depositors at their own discretion.
In a remarkable historical parallel to the 2008 crisis, banks in New York during the 1907 crisis "actually conserved cash as a result of their membership in the clearing house and otherwise profited from the extension of cash to the trust companies. In November 1907, the New York banks obtained as much cash as they remitted elsewhere in the U.S. according to the authors. Sprague observed, "The New York bankers proved themselves wholly unequal to the duties of their position as the central reserve banks of the country."
