Amsterdam, Netherlands 52N37, 4E89

Notes: Founding of Dutch East India Company, multinational corporation. Its first Stock Exchange took place on 03-03-1603. All sources give 20 March 1602, but as the Netherlands did not change to Gregorian calendar uniformly, and not until the early 1700s, it is unclear whether this date is Old Style or New Style. The Journal article, and the chart shown here, assumes New Style.
