Hi Charles, in his book "The Education of a Speculator," Victor Niederhoffer stated that, "The game we play is as old as history. Joseph, in the Old Testament, noticed a seven year cycle of good and bad harvests in ancient Egypt. He convinced the Pharaoh to buy or tax aways the excess in good years and warehouse it for lean years. He became immensely wealthy and influential for his shrewd speculations." p. 147
