From Exchange Invest 2022 Monday April 12th:
So we’ve hit the ‘future!’ This is it, no looking back, 2021 issues of exchange Invest and we’ve caught up with the clock all before we celebrate our 8th birthday in a month’s time.
What started with an examination of the greatest Porsche models in the 900’s graduated to some interesting car stats and engine capacities before settling down with history to guide through the middle ages to the present, often somewhat peripatetically.
Of course it could be fun to plot the Jetsonian future but then again it could end up like one of those polyester kitsch-fest tv series where they had nuclear powered cars, whacky hair (hey with lockdown, don’t we all nowadays, no sci fi required?) and memorably in the British drama UFO, the typing pool remained. With typewriters. Ahem. So let’s not get too overwrought, the future is brought to life in PLY pith elsewhere.
Here’s the plan going forward - we’ll be reviewing history but from the perspective of the day in question and delving into financial history. One snippet per day pertaining to markets (mostly)… I hope you enjoy what are a myriad of financial events many of which you may recall, many perhaps not…
…on which note, many readers spotted a coincidence in Wednesday’s issue when we noted April 14th was the 301st anniversary of the South Sea Company IPO being launched… which coincided with the 2021 DPO of Coinbase. Make of that what you will!
