For 4000 years the world's FIRST MARKET was forgotten along with Sumer, the world's first civilization. Recently discovered cuneiform receipts inscribed on clay tablets (over 100,000) offer clues to the rediscovery of the world's first Wall Street private treaty stock market. The CUNEIFORM CODE unlocks the secret of the first Wall Street.
Using a COBOL business computer program, this book analyzes a very large sampling of these market receipts.
Spanning a century between 2111 and 2002 BCE, the story follows the economic ups and downs of the five kings of the Ur III Dynasty of Sumer.
The story is well documented with the tablets and a glossary of Sumerian-English words.
