The Jury Talks Back


Dow Plunges 1175 Points

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 7:15 pm

It’s been worse percentage-wise, but it’s the biggest point drop in history.

And the futures are not looking bright:

Of course, the Dow is a phony bellwether, but this is real trouble. Of course, some of us had been warning for a while that we were in a bubble. Does that mean I sold everything before today’s crash? Nope. Bubbles are easy to see but hard to time.

And we could recover tomorrow. I doubt it, but you never know.

I think Trump will stop boasting about the stock market for a little while, at least.


  1. I guess being rubio and tpaws sherpa entitles consent to some economic insight?

  2. After one year, we still have ObamaCare, DACA is probably safe, and there is no wall in sight … but it seems we will have the HUGE SPENDING. This is Trump’s idea of being a Republican leader. It looks a lot like the Democrats.
