Thomas Friedman in today’s Times:
“At that point, all five leaders shook hands and retreated into the Oval Office. It was exactly 9:29 a.m. One minute later, the New York Stock Exchange opened. The Dow was up 1,223 points at the open — an all-time record.
What’s sad is how much this is a fantasy and how easily — with just a little political will — it could be a reality.”
Aha! Politicians should boost Wall Street. That's their raison d'être.
