It’s hard to believe that more than ten years have gone by since we began writing The Daily Reckoning out of a Paris office back in July of 1999?
Since then, a lot has changed. We have seen the dot com boom and bust… a massive expansion of credit…real estate mania and meltdown?and epic highs and lows in the markets.
