This Haaretz article points out research on market responses to targeted assassinations in Israel: “‘The difference between political leaders and military leaders and terrorists is extremely important to investors, who see the assassination of political leaders as destructive,’ the study’s authors write.”

And so it should be, although I wonder who qualifies as a terror leader and who qualifies as a political leader.
