Market Reacts To Obama Win

November 16, 2012 by  

Obama wins, stock market falls. The day after Barack Obama’s re-election victory, the Dow Jones industrial average, a popular gauge of the U.S. stock market, suffered its biggest loss in nearly a year, dropping 312.95 points. Even so, the fall wasn’t as bad as the day after Obama first won the White House. On Nov. 5, 2008, the Dow plummeted 486 points. Maybe we should be glad the drop wasn’t worse this time.

Will the U.S. become energy independent? A new report from the International Energy Agency says that the United States will become the world’s top producer of oil within the next five years and a net exporter of the fuel by 2030 or so.  According to the IEA’s World Energy Outlook, this country could be almost energy self-sufficient by 2035, thanks to dramatic increases in the production of oil, shale gas, natural gas and “clean” energies including solar, wind and hydropower.

Another Chicago politician faces jail time. Federal investigators have been looking into whether Representative Jesse Jackson Jr., son of the famous civil-rights crusader, spent campaign funds on personal items, including decorating his home in Washington, D.C. Jackson was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1995. Despite not campaigning this time around (he’s been treated for various health problems for most of the year), the Congressman won re-election handily last week.

What have they done to James Bond? “Skyfall,” the 23rd movie in the James Bond saga, is setting box-office records around the world. It looks as though it will be the most popular Bond film ever. But what’s this I hear about our favorite spy changing drinks? Instead of a vodka martini, he’s now asking for a Heineken. Even worse, he gets caressed by a former agent with a “sexually ambiguous” past. That never would have happened with Sean Connery as Bond.
