A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Wall Street Bull & Bear Collection - The battle of the Bulls and the Bears is the heart of Wall Street. Stockbrokers and investors - in conjunction with banks, savings and loans, credit bureaus, stock exchanges, and other financial institutions supply the capital formation framework necessary for businesses to operate in a capitalistic system. This framework is part of the financial backbone that makes commerce viable in our modern world. Sumerian and Babylonian priests were receiving deposits and making loans as long as 5,000 years ago. The fall of the Roman Empire saw the virtual disappearance of banking as trading declined, but financial dealings thrived in the Arabic countries and in China, where paper money and even checks were being used. It was not until the 11th century that banking on an organized scale was a reality in Europe, after being reintroduced from the Middle East and China. Banking as we know it finally arrived in the 17th century after some very important innovations and changes, chiefly stock exchanges, systematic government taxation, and the modern merchant banker who discounted bills and dealt in government securities. Following a very successful Dutch banking system model, the Bank of England was created in 1694 making credit available at low interest rates, and modern banking was finally a reality that spread quickly across Europe. Today there are many and varied institutions that work together to provide the financial reserves for the nation’s commerce. Whether they are banks, savings and loans, credit unions or the stock markets, they each hold an important place in the overall financial picture. But it seems that the broker, the agent for buying and selling stocks and bonds, is a key figure in the overall financial framework forever concentrating on the constant battle of the Bulls and the Bears.
