A stock exchange is simply a place where the slocks and londs of companies arc bought and sold. The prices are not aled by anyone, but depend on low much buyers arc willing to pay for a stock, and how cheap- y owners are willing to sell. The New York Stock Exchange vas started in 1792, to meet cer- ain needs of the new nation. At hat time New York City had only 10,000 people and occupied five square miles. To pay for the cost of the Revolutionary War and to inanee other activities, Congress authorized the government to issue stocks and bonds unless they could also resell them easily, So. it was clem 1 that a market place for such a purpose was needed. A few business men who met to rade in stocks and bonds, decided to set a place and a regular :ime for their meetings. They decided to meet every day under the wide branches of an old button »vood tree on Wall Street. These men were the <!4 original members of Ihe New York Stock Exchange, They dealt only in government stock, and some hank, insurance and canal company stock. From this market place uiv der the branches of a tree, grew the great New York Stock Exchange of today. But stock exchanges have existed in Europe for a long time. The Paris Bourse can be traced back to the money - changers market of Ihe year 1138. The first exchange in Amsterdam was found i>d in 1U11. And the London Stock Exchange, like New York one of the most important ones in the world, was started in 1773, KUN TIMK The Riddle Kox ]. Why do TV stars keep cool. 1.

The response exceeded expectations, so founder-producer Joesph Papp sent money back to 1,300 people. Papp explained that Via.OOO others had already sent nionoy, and that if the rolls were kept open enough seats wouldn't be available for people who Una up at each performance for gratis tickets.
