The parting glass
Capital & Conflict – brought to you by Fortune & Freedom
VAUXHALL, LONDON – Well dear reader, we had a good run.
But today marks the end of the line for Capital & Conflict. From here on out, this newsletter will be merged with Fortune & Freedom.
It has been an honour to write to you over the past few years under the Capital & Conflict banner. We’ve had some great times together, and now it’s time to write the next chapter.
This isn’t goodbye from me – but it is for this newsletter in its current format. We shall be keeping the website up for a while, but Fortune & Freedom will be our new home, and if you’re subscribed to this newsletter, it’s what you shall start receiving.
I’ll be contributing to Fortune & Freedom as well as our sister publication Exponential Investor on occasion, and of course hosting our new weekly live broadcast, Southbank Live (click here to watch today’s episode with John Butler).
If Fortune & Freedom is not your cup of tea you can always unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of this email – but I do hope you’ll stay with us, as we have so much more we plan to do in the future.
For those who still want to stay in touch outside of the newsletters, you’re welcome to follow me on Twitter, or to tune into my informal weekly podcast with Sam Volkering called Booze, Booms & Busts, where we discuss markets and rate beer (we’ll be recording the latest episode this afternoon, where we shall raise a parting glass to Capital & Conflict).
There were a few things I wanted to do with this newsletter which I never quite got around to. Like compiling an official Capital & Conflict Beer List using the suggestions you sent in, and making a formal infographic of all the suggested collective nouns you provided for gold sovereigns (a big thank you to the reader who suggested a “splendour” of sovereigns, which I will continue to use).
Alas, these will likely remain unfinished – at least under the Capital & Conflict banner.
Still, I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished here – and will cherish all of the witty and insightful correspondence I’ve received from readers over the years. While I didn’t always have time to respond to every email, do know that if you did send me an email, that I read it and felt very privileged to receive it.
For those who won’t be joining us on our new adventure, I wish you all the best in the future, and thank you for reading any of my scribblings in the first place.
For those who stay: thank you, and buckle up, because we’re in for a hell of a ride.
Goodbye, and good luck!
Editor, Capital & Conflict
