The customary weekly roundup
I really thought it would take more time to crash and burn again (How to Recognize a Bull Trap). The Dow had shed another 733 points in what I can only describe as indescribable. I didn’t expect wall-street to get all fidgety this fast. Some of the financial reports published by leading companies were not that bad at all and exceeded expectations. I guess sentiment on wall-street is just too bearish.
To start this roundup I’ve chosen to point out these articles from the NY Times and The Economist:
- The Reckoning @ NY Times – A series of articles exploring the causes of the financial crisis.
- Hurting the real economy @ The Economist – A good article which sheds more light on the issue I’ve addressed in: From a Financial Crisis to a Real Crisis: The Makings of a Greek Tragedy?
On to the past week’s carnivals:
