Nobel vs. Dow Jones

Friday: The stock market ended the week up a little, recovering from a bad day Thursday.

Monday: The Nobel committee announced that the prize in economics will go to three American economists for their work on why markets don't always work, and what can be done to fix them when they don't. (Something like that.)

Monday and Tuesday, as of this writing: The stock market tumbles one percent (approx.).

Probably no relationship at all, but mildly amusing.
