  1. Stock exchanges are not like other businesses. The performance of national stock exchanges is often taken as a proxy for the health of a nation’s economy, or at least investor enthusiasm for the country’s prospects. National exchanges also play an under-appreciated policy role in deciding the listing and compliance standards for companies that wish to go public. On top of all that, there is a nebulous but real sense that national pride is often somehow tied to stock exchanges. British coffee houses helped give rise to the juggernaut that is the NYSE.
