Thinking back through other crises that have occurred since I started my career in 1988, I realised my favourite was my first: 1997/98. It was a world entered into peril, a peril that started in Asia and headed West, to LTCM, Russia, etc., etc. For a Macro risk-taker, what wasn’t to like?
While contemplating the past, my instinct is to recapture memories by listening to music from that period. Glancing at my Spotify downloads from that year I saw the Manic Street Preachers (MSP) and regretted not listening to them in many, many years.
I don't see any explicit lessons to be learned from the specifics of the crisis of 1997/98, but the title of the MSP’s best album, This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours, inspired this chain of thought. Funny old world…
