Japan: The Calamity Part 2

I'm sick of the news updates and articles of the Nikkei/US stock markets down, dollar down/yen up, and GDP numbers as if it matters... They keep taking up valuable news time. The keep interrupting the coverage of the victims of the tsunami and the looming threat of a nuclear disaster.

Come on, people's lives matter. Finding survivors. Shelter, food, water. Finding lost family members. Grieving lost family members. The nuclear debacle. That's what's important.

The stock market will NOT change any of what's going on in the lives of the people impacted in Japan. So stop harping on stock market, GDP, and economic numbers! Not now, not ever.

The people define an economy, not the other way around. The people will rebuild their lives and economy. The stock market / economy does not define the people, well unless one wants a disfunctioning society.
