Forgot to post this one on Friday. Well, it looks like the "great experiment" in Europe has done nothing except bring down the world economy. Countries (and esp. their banks) are so interconnected now that it seems when a politician sneezes in Italy, the entire planet catches a cold. I found it interesting that the moment the EU determined that they were actually going to get together and hammer out a plan, that our markets stabilized. We'll see how long it lasts.
