Marc Faber: Obama is a Disaster for Business and a Disaster for the US
http://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/Marc-Faber-Obama-is-a-...

"The victory by Barack Obama on election night has resulted in a huge wave of firings and layoffs all over America. A large number of businesses seem to have suddenly shifted into panic mode. The number of layoff announcements that we have seen in the last 48 hours has been absolutely shocking. "--Michael Snyder, J.D.
