Markets Don’t Like A Coalition Government? Awww…

Listening to the CBC radio news today about the crisis in Europe over the Italian election results, the statement was made:

Markets don’t like a coalition.

Hey, that’s one more reason for me to like a coalition. Wish we had one of those instead of a mogul megalomaniac running a one-man show in Ottawa.

By the way, did you notice that markets are now personified. They have “likes” and “dislikes.”

Seeing as corporations have corporate personhood – all the rights, and more, of a human being (plus tons of power – and immortality to boot), I guess it was only a matter of time until the Markets became persons, too.
