what moves markets and voters

forgive me for another outdated post, but this was a screen capture I did a few weeks ago – back when a 300 point drop was huge, before the 777 point one-day drop:

I know it’s all just a coincidence, but you know that this stock market free-fall is going to play to Obama’s favor.  seemed ironic at the time, and since then has proven precient.

  1. Hah! That’s too funny.

    Did you read about the AIG execs going on a very expensive retreat right after the bail-out? I’d like to meet them in a dark alley….

  2. yeah, heard about that today and thought it might be a post of it’s own… but what to say? “how to piss away any possible goodwill with the rest of society”?

    when I first heard the report on the radio, I thought it might have been a few days before the bailout — when I heard it was after the AIG action I said out loud, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!?!?” Now, to ask for everyone involved to resign is probably too much — they prolly didn’t have any option to accept or decline the event. But to Publicly Shame and possibly fire the people in charge of the decision to have the event — I’m all for that. They should be fired for their stupidity/ignorance.
