We haven’t seen numbers like these since the last global recession.

We have never had a year start the way that 2016 has started. In the U.S., the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 have both posted their worst four-day starts to a year ever. Canadian stocks are now down 21 percent since September, and it has been an absolute bloodbath in Europe over the past four days.

A soccer game between the national teams of Germany and the Netherlands was canceled due to terror concerns on Tuesday, but this is only just the beginning. From now on, very few people will be able to attend large gatherings in the western world without thinking about the possibility that they might be shot or blown to bits. This is how terrorism works – it instills fear in people. And that is why the recent attacks in Paris were so effective.
