    German firm in talks to purchase NYSE

    NYSE traders say yes to Germany, no to lederhosen | Reuters

    (Reuters) - A German takeover of the New York Stock Exchange, the citadel of American capitalism, would have shocked its floor traders in years gone by. But not now.
    NOTE: The original title of this article was "NYSE traders say yes to Germany, no to lederhosen" however that was not descriptive and said nothing about the content of the article. If the Moderators disagree with my decision to clarify the title, feel free to change it back.


    I'm interested in hearing from the pro-Capitalist Americana side of this. Should ANYTHING be for sale?

    Once the horse is out of the barn it's too late to close the door. This is globalization run amok.

    This is one of many things that should remain under U.S. control like all of our defense industries which I am sorry to say some parts which are already vulnerable to the whims of Nations which could become of questionable loyalty at the wrong time.

    We don't need stocks possibly being manipulated by outsiders. No offense to Germany but they have a poor track record with economics as I recall it. Not counting recent history that is.

    Though it sounds imminent, I don't think it will ever happen. You think this would ever be approved by the govt?

    I never thought Jeep would become a Chinese company. It's hard to predict the future.

    The Chinese do not own Jeep.
