What was Wall Street telling us in the closing months of 2018? How can we know? Should we care?
Who drives prices in financial markets anyway?
Financial markets happened just about from the birth of capitalism in Holland and England. The Tulip Mania, the South Sea Bubble and the Mississippi Company Bubble demonstrated early on in the evolution of capitalism the incentive power of finance and the frequent irrationality of its pricing.
As we move into more and more advanced post-industrial capitalism, it seems prudent to reflect on the role of financial markets with the borrowings which keep them robust.
As the 2020 campaign begins, the issues around Wall Street will take center stage for the next two years.
