The history of businesses and industries

What better time to take look back than at the end of the year?

The history of industries is a well-researched site, full of interesting facts such as when a product was first launched or a brand logo first introduced or changed.  My link takes you to the industries page, but the site covers a wealth of business information described by the site’s creators as “invaluable for perspective on the history of capitalism, commerce, enterprise, entrepreneurship, operating success and failure and management decision-making”.

The industry histories are easy to scan, being presented in a timeline format of notable dates.  I dare say that 2008/9 will turn out to be notable dates too, judging by the number of unprecedented events currently taking place across many industries.
