SHUTDOWN-MARKET REACTION

NEW YORK â¿¿ The government shuts down. The economy unravels. Stocks plunge. That may be Wall Street's worst fear, but history shows it's overblown. There have been 17 federal government shutdowns since 1976. These have ranged in length from one to 21 days. None have caused a catastrophic meltdown of the stock market. Some analysts are cautiously suggesting that the recent slump in stock prices offers investors a buying opportunity. By Markets Writer Steve Rothwell.

BUDGET BATTLE-OBAMACARE

WASHINGTON â¿¿ Republicans pulling on the budget thread can't neatly unravel President Barack Obama's health care law. A partial government shutdown next week would leave the major parts of the law in place and rolling along, and health care markets for the uninsured would open as scheduled on Tuesday. By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar.

GLOBAL MALL SECURITY

Some malls around the world have been scrambling to add security guards to look for suspicious people following a deadly attack on a shopping center in Nairobi over the weekend. But for other malls, it's been business as usual. The mixed reactions by malls across the globe isn't unusual in an industry whose security efforts vary from unarmed guards in most shopping centers in the U.S., to metal detectors and bag searches in places like Israel, to main entrances that resemble airport security lines in India. By Anne D'Innocenzio.
