Yes, you are absolutely correct. Since 2 weeks, every day, the US financial headlines keep repeating 5 words "Markets drop on EU worries".
It's time to ask a question: Is it the interest of USA(WSJ) to continue to reinforce and spread this (mostly baseless) extremly negative sentiment? To put all the blame of a worldwide confidence-crisis (there is no recession yet, not in US, and not in Europe; nowhere !) and try to generate panic, in Europe?
