Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What's amazing is that the DOW hasn't reacted to this at all.

300 points is NOTHING in the face of the total failure of banking in the United States.

This means people are NOT calling and pulling their investments out of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch (if they pulled out of ML, safe to say that BoA would reconsider). I'm also hearing that people on Wall Street expect the financial firms to be reconstituted as largely independently running firms with their current headquarters remaining in place.

I am more panicked than the people on Wall Street, in other words.

So, what are we missing on this thread?

Just got back from an hour walk, had time to think.

In light of what we've seen in the last 12 hours, who wants to have a weekly ET prayer group; I'll lead it.

We'll need JE-BUS to get through the next year.

Any takers?

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
