Yesterday a hoax tweet about a White House bomb caused a stock fall. It only lasted minutes, but it did happen. That stock drop was caused by people reacting to a text message.
Maybe it is a good thing that our government is not quite so quick on the trigger. If this message had been about a nuke hitting a US city, an equally momentary response could have been horrific.
I propose that the stock market fix the problem that it has. It cannot be this susceptible to emotional responses.
