The economic impact of “Paris”

paris-clouded-skylineTop of mind with OpinioPro users last week were the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Barclays and Blackrock have an opposite view on the impact of the events.

Barclays:

 “The calm response of equity markets to the atrocities in Paris last weekend illustrate a point that we have made several times over the last few years – capital markets are capable of being totally indifferent to human suffering, particularly if the economic cost is suspected to be minimal”

BlackRock:

“The ramifications of these horrific events are likely to be significant and long-lasting. We share some insights in this note on how we think this tragedy might affect politics, policy and markets”

But off course this tragedy was mentioned by a lot of market watchers. Here you can find a complete overview.
