  • Every day, every news programme reports the level of the FTSE 100.   Here's a question (actually three):

    What does the FTSE 100 measure?

    What is that a proxy for?

    Of what relevance is that to most people's daily lives?

    Answers welcome.

    Just because we always have, doesn't mean we always should.

    Hat tip to Richard Murphy for the comment.
