Gingernomics, Bathhouses, passkeys, Communist shills & the city of Gibraltar’s recognition: part of a path to Covid reconciliation?

Exchange Invest is a unique information resource combining the day’s stories in a newsletter for investors in exchanges/financial markets infrastructure.

Exchange Invest was founded by former exchange CEO and author of the first bestselling book of fintech (“Capital Market Revolution!” FT 1999) Patrick L Young. Monday through Friday our daily paid subscriber email discusses the business of bourses of all kinds across the world.

This weekly edition is a magazine of broader macro topics as well as including our free weekly podcast which reviews the highlights of the week in the world’s market structure.

On this day in 1781, Eugène de Beauharnais, viceroy of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy was born. He was the founder of Milan Stock Exchange, Borsa Italiana, Italy’s oldest and only stock exchange. It was established in 1808 as a commodities exchange.

From Exchange Invest 2442: 31st, August 2022: Wednesday

Good to see Gibraltar awarded UK city status, albeit the award was originally made by Queen Victoria in the fifth year of her reign but was omitted from the list of recognised cities because it was awarded under Diocesean Letters Patent, rather than the normal City Status Letter Patent.

A mere 180 years later and the British blob have corrected their administrative error.

Presumably that means we can expect an official apology for the Covid lockdown fiasco early in the 25th century? Delivered by Buck Rogers I suppose.


In IPO-VID Episode 063: Patrick L. Young was joined by Canadian Securities Exchange CEO, Richard Carleton.

Listen and learn as they ranged across everything from SMEs to Cannabis.
