The Federal government cut over $10 billion per month leading to crisis and disruption in the stock market.

The free enterprise market currently is in a state of chaos. It seems to be a failure of capitalism. The S&P 500 spiraled by 4%. Meanwhile, the shares of the Boeing Company were a source of attrition for the Dow Jones Average. However, with the passage of time the US economy is expected to improve.

The social network owned by Mark Zuckerberg has really got the world in the palm of its hand. Maybe that is because it fulfils such an important purpose in today’s atomized world of fragmented relations. The NYSE and Nasdaq have both many companies and firms in a slump right now. In fact, the enterprises that show a marked decline outnumber the successful ones by a three to one ratio.
