The markets will rebound. I am willing to make the bet that this, in the long term, ends up being like a Y2K in terms of the markets.

On a selfish note, this is a net posative for America
Bad for European elites, long term better for average British citizen, longer term much better for England.

if it's anything like up here, the capital loss could help at tax time, at least

it is not a loss or gain until you cash it out. and if you are an old bastard the cash out should not be a taxable event

On a really really selfish note, I hope to watch the GBP nose dive some more into the 1.20s. I'll be the richest student in England with my fancy United States Dollar loan.

it is a positive for America because some capital will leave UK and European markets uncertainty and migrate to American markets.

I say we ban all capital until we find out what's going on.

We don't need any more immigrants. That could be mooslim capital.

They should take the fortune and set up some tourist sites, hire some plain looking actors play the parts.
