Surely Marx would have something to say about this. Time to re-read Capital?
God it would have been nice to have been daytrading at that moment though. Buying, in particular. Alas. One can’t exactly predict these sorts of things.
Also, I dare anyone to tell me that this isn’t a much bigger national security threat than planes flying into buildings and shit. ONE GUY can tank the stock market with a fucking TYPO?! Five of ‘em, in the right position, and acting deliberately, could probably destroy the economy in ten minutes. Who needs suicide bombers?
