LAST WEEK’S TRIVIA ANSWER
I trace my roots back to the 1876 opening of Thomas Edison’s laboratory in New Jersey. I was incorporated a bit later, in 1892, and encompassed the assets of several companies. Over the years, I have been in businesses as diverse as aircraft engines, finance, medical equipment, power transmission, renewable energy, transportation, appliances, water treatment systems, plastics, media and entertainment. Based in Boston now, I recently sported a market value topping $60 billion, but that’s down from more than $270 billion a few years ago. I was one of the original 12 companies on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Who am I? (Answer: General Electric)
