History lesson

For much of the second part of 1968 and some of 1969 the NYSE changed its operations as part of a "Paperwork Crisis." Specifically, for the second part of 1968 the market closed on Wednesdays and for much of 1969 the market was closed early in order to get caught up on paper work.

You can read more about this from the NYSE itself.

The reason I am telling you this, is that I am going to declare my own paperwork crisis and give Finance 402 a reprieve on Wed. We will have class, but no case will be presented. You will still be responsible for readings and for coming.

We will be having a regular class.
