This is an interesting idea (and apologies if I’m late to it): Someone is writing a regular blog summarizing the economic and market news from today’s date in 1930 in the Wall Street Journal. For example, here is a recent post with a quote from June 21, 1930:
This is America. Piffling talkers would turn back the calendar to the nineties and destroy the economic progress of thirty years. Vicious rumors spread for selfish purposes; flippant predictions of a five-year slump in business; wholesale demands for the cutting of wages are unworthy of American intelligence. Credit is super-abundant. Business is no worse than three months ago. Twelve months of declining volume is behind us. Many adjustments have been all but completed. Engineering and marketing brains are as fertile as ever. Problems there have always been. To proclaim their insurmountability is childish.
Lots more here.
