Due to a severe decline in the Russian stock market after the fall in oil prices, Google now has a larger market cap than the entire Russian stock market.

Wow. Not sure I'm interested in Russia, but many major oil companies have very attractive yields now in this low rate environment.

Sorry, I can be incredibly boring at times.

This is only true when pricing the Russian market in US dollars. It was either Monday or Tuesday this week where the Russian market was down 16% (in dollars), when in fact it was up 3% in Rubles. It's really a currency collapse as opposed to a stock market crash.
