Vote: The most important business story of 2011

If I ask you to vote on the “biggest” national/international business or economy story of 2011, many of us might pick the death of Steve Jobs. It touched techies and luddites, Mac and PC geeks, the 99 percent and the 1 percent. But what about the story over the past year that will matter the most in the next several years; the one historians might pinpoint as defining?

Here are my picks. If you have another, please add it in the blog’s comments section:

2011’s most important biz/econ event

Next week, we’ll vote on the top Seattle/Northwest stories. Read on for the links.
