On this day: 6 September

ON THIS DAY- On this day in 1915, the first tank ever produced rolled off the assembly line in England, according to the History Channel. The prototype nicknamed “Little Willie,” developed in response to trench warfare of WWI, “weighed 14 tons, got stuck in trenches and crawled over rough terrain at only two miles per hour.” … Also on this day, Nobel Peace Prize winner and social activist Jane Addams was born in 1860. … Pink Floyd fans will also want to wish Roger Waters a happy birthday today. … On Enterprise, you were reading last year about yet another dismal PMI report, the ergot content in wheat problem, and Moody’s praising the prospect of implementing VAT. … In 2015, Enterprise readers were reading about the prospect of the EGP losing 20% of its value within 12 months — that was back when the USD was changing hands for EGP 7.80.
