40,000! RECORD HIGH $$$

 

The "Dow", a classic index of the value of stocks, closed above the magic number 40,000 today for the first time ever in history.


Toward the end of Trump's term in office, the Yield Curve inverted.  That is usually a sign of a recession that is likely to follow (see below).

However, despite many fears and "predictions" of gloom, with numerous measures that stimulated the economy the Biden administration not only avoided a recession, but great growth seems strongly under way.

The economy is strong. And improving.

LIFE AND TRUST - immersive theater

 

SLEEP NO MORE may be going to sleep soon.  (They have posted closing notices, but extended at least once). BUT ... LIFE AND TRUST is a new project from Emursive Productions (the producers of Sleep No More).


I know almost nothing about Life and Trust, except that it takes place in a building around Wall Street, and seems to have a financial theme: No full description, preview, or review so far, that I have seen.  (*** UPDATES! see below)

{I've bought a ticket for late June; there are performances starting June 17 ("Sold Out"), and (at least, as of 6:42 May 13tickets available beginning June 19.}

From the terms and conditions (I don't think my ticket terms included an NDA) it seems similar in format to Sleep No More:


SLEEP NO MORE has been one of the most important and interesting events in theater since it opened more than 12 years ago! Currently it is scheduled to close on June 23 2024.  If you have not seen it, I highly recommend visiting before it is gone!
