Have you ever noticed the weird excitement Public Radio reporters exude when they talk about the stock market diving?
What’s that about?
Are they feeling superior to those who bought into the capitalist economy? Or are they nervous about their own holdings? Or maybe the breathlessness stems from some kind of apocalyptic feeling?
This morning I could hear it so clearly as they announced “only a couple of hours before US markets open…” in the wake of the Asian and European sell-offs.
