Arabs to Buy 20 Percent of Nasdaq, Politicians Question Deal


www.foxnews.com

NEW YORK — Nasdaq Stock Market Inc. struck a complex deal to sell a 20 percent stake to the state-owned Borse Dubai in return for control of Sweden's leading stock market, but the plan met with some questions from U.S. politicians concerned it would raise security issues.

The sale of the Nasdaq stake is part of a flurry of cross-border handshaking unveiled Thursday that holds potential to remake the already shifting landscape of global stock exchanges.

I'm not one to put much faith in either Fox or Worldnetdaily... but this looks legit.

The Globe and Mail is usually a solid source:


Qatar said it had bought a 20 percent stake in LSE through the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) and urged OMX shareholders to take no action on the Dubai/Nasdaq offer. Sources familiar with the matter later said the QIA was buying OMX shares.

In a further dimension of the agreement, Nasdaq will take a 33 percent stake in the Dubai International Financial Exchange (DIFX), to be renamed Nasdaq DIFX. Borse Dubai will use this name in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. The pair agreed to a separate joint venture in China.

I'm not sure what this implies... but I'm not thinking it will be anything good for us people.

I'm not a financial Guru, but could this just be a case of the rich trying to get richer and not something malicious?

Dubai is just HUGE money.

Memories are clouded through the years, Yes they are big money but also they were linked to the Bin-Laden holdings also they are linked to terrorist funding under the table before 9/11. But now they are our friends, people forgot about the port deal that the Democrats made a big deal because their dubious link and the security risks.

Now they are into our markets because our corporate ridden government deals.

I wonder who is going to complain this time.

Papa Bush is going to make a killing with the Carlyle group deal.

This should be all over the 9/11 conspiracies forums.

Not a big deali n my opinion. Just a move towards making the markets more accessable globally. We are moving toward the time where the average guy can buy a stock outside of America without it being an ADR (shares on deposit at a foreign bank)or in a mutual fund. I personally welcome it. I put at least 20% of my assets in foriegn stocks and this will help make the selection much broader.

Another part of this deal is that we get full control of Swedens exchanges.

Don't be scared out of globalization, it's going to happen. Soon the world will have to pay as much for Chinese and indian labor as it does for American labor. That is when America makes up lost ground and everyone realizes that we have not given ourselves away, we only leveled the playing field. If only we knew the real plan for the NWO, we could decide if it was for our benefit or not. Until then, the best way to fight them, is to get rich along side of them. IIf it all crashes does it really matter? Dollars in the matress will be worthless. Buy stocks,especially tthose that become popular on the Dubai exchange.
