New York, Moody's Investors Service, 1933-1935
The periodical was published by Moody's Investors Service, one of the Big Three credit ratings agencies which continue to operate today. Its founder, John Moody (1868-1958), withstood several market crashes to get his business on its feet. As Thomas Friedman quipped in 1996 'There are two superpowers in the world today in my opinion. There's the United States and there's Moody's Bond Rating Service. The United States can destroy you by dropping bombs, and Moody's can destroy you by downgrading your bonds. And believe me, it's not clear sometimes who's more powerful'.
