    Stock exchange is ruling the world, nowadays. And it has little to do with real world.

    It depends on what you're qualifying as the "real world", considering there are people protesting in many major cities around the world. Others, simply want a company to be around for support.

    I read about this, as well, in the NY Times. Let's hope for clarity and facts.

    Yup, should have added a line or two... It was a sad comment: share value does not always relate to the value of work and products. Don't know what's going on at Olympus, but I'm sure someone is making money on these fluctuations, and I could also think that something is happening on pourpose. Users and workers pay the fee, that is what I meant with "real". Perhaps someone is interested in aquiring Olympus, now it's cheaper.
