trillions of dollars just disappeared from WallStreet. The people who are the real losers are the stockholders. These companies were publishing AAA ratings and continued selling stocks while knowing they were cooking the books and were about to go bust. There is no recourse for the stockholders. They are just out whatever money they had invested. So, why would anyone in their right mind ever invest another dime in the stockmarket? Do you think this will have an effect on investment? at least until the memory of this event dims a little?
