The Keeper | Dec 23, 2022

2022 was a remarkable year for our global initiative to improve understanding of finance, business and human behaviour, one mistake at a time.

Most notably, we opened up our new state-of-the-art library in Edinburgh. If you can get to Edinburgh, please do visit – simply register with us and then arrange a time, all via our website. We also have libraries in Lausanne (Switzerland) and Pune (India) – with several more in the pipeline.

Importantly, this year we also started selling our renowned financial history course online. There’s still time to give it as a Christmas gift!

And we launched our podcast series, which has already had more than 42,000 downloads. Check out what all the fuss is about in a series of great interviews with thought-provoking authors – available on AppleSpotify and all the usual podcast platforms.

We also have huge plans for 2023: two in-person course sessions, more events, more podcasts, a Festival of Mistakes, Library of Mistakes branded merchandise and mementoes, as well as a revamped website bringing together all of our activities in the one place.

Donating to the Library: We are installing a new charity donation card reader in the Library – the way we remain a free-to-use library is through the support of our many friends, so thank you!

Our next event at the Library in Edinburgh is on 18 January 2023 at 18:30 GMT, and will explore Invested – How Three Centuries of Stock Market Advice Reshaped Our Money, Markets, and Minds, with the authors Paul Crosthwaite, Peter Knight, Nicky Marsh, Helen Paul and James Taylor. Registered readers can apply for free tickets to attend in person from early January, or you can watch online.

Finally, a very Merry Christmas to you all and best wishes for 2023.
