401(k) and you can see the dow jones industrial average is falling and the s&p 500 falling and you will see that backing your 401(k). in it holds where they are now and close out the day where they are, the average 401(k) retirement savings account would lose $2,700. the longer term question, what does it mean for the world economy? in britain, in the european union, slows down, that would not be insignificant. it could spill over to the united states. there were a number of companies in the united states that have warned of the impact the move would have on their business. caterpillar hassations in blip. ford has operations there. a number of multinational companies names we are familiar with in the united states have operations in europe and britian and this could have a lasting
