|A small street, not so easy to find and yet famous, and I'm here in front of the New York Stock Exchange. Some policemen prevent its access. 20 years ago, we could come in and see the traders get inpanic screaming orders. Naturally, the 9-11 events have, here also, left a definite mark. Henceforth, the street seems peaceful and we toil to imagine that the sort of world economy is decided behind these walls, under a vast american flag. The men with dark suit going out don't show anything about the immense financial crisis that shakes up the world.|
