Wall Street has been nervous about what Egypt's revolution will mean for their investments. But one CEO helped put their mind at ease. At a meeting of 800 of Morgan Stanley's top executives, Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, the world's largest money manager, said he sees a three-year horizon for democratization. Fox Business paraphrased Fink's basic sentiment as, "There are business opportunities there and that's what this revolution shows." Fink, an apparent social-networking fiend, also said something along the lines of, "Just as Facebook elected Barack Obama, Facebook basically caused this revolution." Using a world historical event to ratchet up Facebook's valuation. Look what democracy can bring you, Egypt! [Fox Business]
