阿姆斯特丹危机始于荷兰Seppenwolde银团对东印度公司的股价做出了巨额的反向下注。这只股票在1771年早已大跌,主要是因为孟加拉的损失。但这家公司靠借钱继续支付高股息,掩盖了问题。Seppenwolde深信东印度股价会很快反弹,基于保证金大举买入该股。但它的股价并未反弹,在东印度公司降低了股息后,股价甚至进一步走低。

Why the difference? It wasn’t because of a difference in the available information. As Koudijs and Voth point out, everybody in Dutch financial circles knew and understood the magnitude of what had happened. Nor was it because the Seppenwolde lenders had to rebuild their own finances. Within weeks of the default, the lenders knew they hadn’t lost any money.

Unlike organs such as the lungs and skin, once the heart suffers significant damage it has little ability to repair itself.
