Economic Turbulence in Curved Mirror of Stock Market

The world is changing rapidly. Moreover, it will never be the one we knew before the 2007 meltdown. Five years that passed since then changed the economic landscape so significantly, that no one can expect that the economic crisis will go and the world will be resurrected. And the stock market like a mirror reflects these changes. Sometimes in grotesque figures.
