Wall Street Tumbles Below 10,000 Amid Global Sell-Off

Click to Read

Wall Street Tumbles Below 10,000 Amid Global Sell-Off Wall Street tumbled again Monday, joining a sell-off around the world as fears grew that the financial crisis will cascade through economies globally despite bailout efforts by the US and other governments. The Dow Jones industrials skidded nearly 500 points and fell below 10,000 for the first time in four years, while the credit markets remained under strain. The markets have come to the sobering realization that the Bush administration's $700 billion rescue plan won't work quickly to unfreeze the credit markets, and that many banks are still having difficulty gaining access to cash.

Strange, Bush's tactic of throw loads of money at a problem didn't work.

Yes, Bush's first sure-fire plan definitely helped.

Hey we're okay, I just heard Bush say this is why people sent him to Washington - 'ya see a problem, you put a team together and you solve it.'

The Cubs will never win a World Championship again. What about Obama's plan to raise the capital gains tax? I bet that'll encourage liquidity and investment.
harmonyfrance harmonyfrance 8 years about those Cubs, huh?

Oh, I know what would work. We could lower interest rates again, create even more artificially available credit and push this whole mess off another month. Who cares if it'll compound the problem of malinvestment, I need to sell my stocks first.

The government is going to want our firtborns. They can get a good price for them on the black market. Won't even have to pay taxes on the transcation.
