This story from London's SUNDAY TIMES (Aug. 3) warns: "Millennium bomb may cripple Wall Street." The article quotes an anonymous banker:
"This is not a prediction, it is a certainty there will be serious disruption in the world's financial services industry. I can't tell whether it's going to be 10% business failure, or a meltdown, but it's going to be ugly." He predicted a millennium-induced worldwide crash "around the middle of 1999".
