Transcript of great gatsby time and the stock market crash

Time and the stock market crash On page 5, Nick talks about his past and that is the very first example of how time affects this story,for his past is the reason why he was reserved through out his child hood and the book. The stock market crash was caused because people were spending more than what they really had. So excessive spending would cause a person to borrow more to replace what they had spent. In chapter two on page 32, Tom gave the man ,who was selling the puppies more money than needed to for Mrs. Wilson.
he tells the man " go buy ten more." During the twenties leading up to the stock market crash there was a "limitless prosperity" that led up to black tuesday. On page 44, the jazz age was portrayed as people spending a great deal of time partying and drinking . People such as Gatsby spent their hard earned money on large amounts of alcohol for himself as well as others. The war kept the economy stable because everyone had a steady job / source of income. On page 51, Nick and another character began talking about the war after having a few drinks. The people who were involved in selling and buying stocks and bonds invested based on buying more than what what they really had. On page 46, Nick talks about the appearance and the conversation of the englishmen who are at the party and says, " all well dressed, all looking a little hungry and all talking in low earnest voices. i was sure they were all selling something: bonds or insurance or auto mobiles." Meaning that...they move on not letting the past effect their future. They move on without stopping. On 189, the final sentence, "so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." That showed a crash of gatsby american dream because he wasn't wealthy at the time an she was alone when tom would come up and take her away. On page 158, Gatsby tells nick the story of how he fell in love with daisy. then she sent him a letter that "worried him", for "there was a quality of nervousness and despair." how it led to the end
of the american dream On page 188, nick says, " Probably it was some final guest who had been away at the ends of the earth and didnt know that the party was over." On page 186, " im 30 ," " im 5 years too old to lie to myself and call it honor" On page 176, Mr. Gatz said, "he had a big future before him you know. He was only a young man but he had a lot of brain power here."
