  • History. 1After multiple attempts for 5 years, Charles Nelson X, by accident, invented something. While the invention was successful, it did not make him rich, the business collapsed in 1860, and X ended up in prison, leaving debts of more than $200,000 to his family.Some 38 hours later, the company X was formed by Frank Augustus and Charles Seiberling in honour of X and the invention.Firstly, the company produced horse hoof pads and then moved into bicycle wheels until 1900.In 1900 the company decided to develop a logo to brand its operations, and as a result they developed a wingfoot picture that would sit within the X name. That logo is virtually the same as the logo that is used today. Interesting history. Give me X.

In 1900, when the company had a workforce of 32, Slavia exports began, with 150 machines shipped to London for the Hewtson firm. Shortly afterwards, the press credited them as makers of the first motorcycle. Z please.

  • Economics. 1The economic depression which started in 2008 earns its origins to the real estate bubble that preceded it.A lot of similarities exist between the long depression of 1873 and the 2008 crisis: In 1873, the X industry was booming just as the housing industry boomed 10 years ago. And like housing, much of the X boom was due to excessive government subsidies, which made the boom much larger than it should have been. Investors, speculators, and bankers hurried to get in on the riches by investing millions in X, and soon the X supply exceeded consumer demand.

    Which bubble burst led to the 1873 long depression?
