”What Daniel is implying is that the financial markets are controlled by the political decisions of the capitalist class.”

No, I don’t mean to imply that they are CONTROLLED. What I said is they REACT. There’s a very important difference between those words. Financial markets certainly react as they do PARTLY because of conscious decisions in times of conflict (capital flight, destabilization) and partly because people with power over large sums of money tend to become worried about spending on welfare but not so worried by spending on bail outs and arms.
