Today, let us be thankful that the following has not occurred…YET.
A young lady waking up one morning, pouring herself a steaming cup of coffee, and stretching as she walks over to turn on her TV. As she clicks her remote, she suddenly sees a disturbing image of the U.S. President on the screen (flanked by the Secretary of the Treasury, and the Federal Reserve Chairman) making an unscheduled speech….at 7 in the morning. She tries to change the channel, but it seems to be on most stations, even non-news stations.
“The President has called for calm in financial markets.” “Authorities try to stabilize currency and bond markets, ahead of Dow opening.” “Dow futures down by 845 points.” “Dow futures now down by 985 points.”
“The President has asked for patience as banks are to close for a brief period, before reopening again next Tuesday.”
