Was talking to my dad earlier and stock prices came up. He last paid any attention to the UK markets around the time of the dotcom crash.
The price today is basically the same as it was the last time he noticed it 20 years ago.
But I knew the American markets are up like 2x, 3x in that time.
Wonder what caused the difference.
You can write any old labels on a graph of course, but these seem to be the points where the graphs differ.
Guess you gotta hope your pension wasn't invested too heavily in Britain the last 20 years either way.
I wonder how much of that is a US bubble.
A gateway into the global open conversation in the fediverse for Boing folks and anyone they know.
