Wall Street plunges 200 points in worst week for two years

Wall Street closed out its worst week in over two years last night after the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged again, this time by almost 200 points.
Fears of a slowdown in the American economy, heightened by disappointing results from IBM, prompted a third successive day of heavy selling.

Catherine,

What happened to the stock market yesterday is a perfect example of why Social Security should not be privatized. Can you imagine the effect that this would have had on Social Security accounts if Social Security were already privatized?
