No, Reuters, Market Didn’t “Shrug Off” Anti-Euro Votes — Markets Applauded Them
Reuters is so deep into the ‘European Project’ that it never occurred to them that a rise in European markets, after shockingly (if you’re only a reader of Europe’s establishment press) strong gains by euro-skeptic parties, might possibly be good for the economy. If markets went up, it simply must be that they weren’t paying any attention to these elections which have been getting wall-to-wall press coverage from global media. They just can’t imagine the possibility that investor actually do read newspapers and watch TV news and liked what they saw.
On top of that, the tone set by Narendra Modi, the new conservative Prime Minister of India, has been good for Asian markets despite hysterical global press coverage about some alleged wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in India.
With India trending conservative, by my count now the whole Anglosophere is trending towards market parties with only two exceptions: South Africa and the United States of America.
