Quite an exciting day. After a (mere!) month of US-style debates and general public-pandering, Britain’s top dogs battle it out… etc… Labour and Conservative are neck-and-neck at the moment, but I need to go to sleep (first 9-miler since November has me totally wiped out), else I’d stay up to find out. Yeah, I’m kind of a dork 🙂
For more on the election – results and such, once they come in – check out the BBC and NYT.
For market info, I refer to the ever-trusty NYT Market Overview. Basic summary of what happened: Greece’s economic disaster (debt, bailouts, etc. – the whole deal) and resulting riots combined with the euro’s lowest value in over a year AND Proctor & Gamble’s accounting/stock estimates errors all led to sudden, drastic, worldwide stock drops.
(article at NYT here) – Market Drops Fueled by a Crisis, Anxiety and an Error.
And don’t even metion the Gulf of Mexico.
Right, off to bed. Night.
