To honor the one-year anniversary of the publication of ETFs for the Long Run, I”m a publishing the photos from my biggest media event.
Last summer, to help promote the publication of the book and in appreciation for telling the Nasdaq’s influencial part of the history of the ETF, I was invited to ring the closing bell on Aug. 19, 2008.
Why publish these now? Well, at the time this occurred I just started the blog and didn’t have the hang of it yet. Then the financial world blew up.
A few weeks later, I had the “good fortune” to have my book hit the bookstores the week Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. At the time, people were worried about the financial collapse of the entire Western World and the coming of the second Great Depression. So, no one really wanted to celebrate a book talking up Wall Street products. But things are better now. I want a redo. So, I’m ramping up publicity and this is the beginning.
