No Glee To Be Found In Brexit Vote
The facts were strange things to the supporters of the Brexit movement over the past months. The leave element in Britain used outright lies and upside down thinking to promote and spin their efforts. They maligned immigrants and made a mockery of educated reasoning.
But the outcome of the vote is brutal. And that is factual.
The $2.08 trillion wiped off global equity markets on Friday … was the biggest daily loss ever, trumping the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy during the 2008 financial crisis and the Black Monday stock market crash of 1987 … Friday’s decline as a percentage of total market capitalization was 4.7 percent. That was outstripped on seven occasions during the financial crisis.
