The world economy will be affected by the decision of the House of Representatives when it voted 228-205 to reject a Wall Street bailout bill that would have authorized the Treasury Department to spend up to US$700-billion to purchase broken mortgage-backed bonds from banks. How will the stalled capital markets jump-start now? My, i just wish that this would not spell a bank run in the next few days. To my friends out there, the stock market is volatile now. Extra careful in trading stocks, you might lose a fortune if you make haste decisions.
