Google Is Now Worth More Than the Entire Russian Stock Market

Dec 18, 2014

Google is now more valuable than the entire Russian stock market. Russia's stock market is now worth $325 billion while Google is valued at more than $340 billion, according to Bloomberg.

The news comes as Russia's currency, the ruble, continues to stumble under pressure from declining oil prices and western sanctions. Russia's gold reserves have also declined to their lowest point since 2009.

Google joins an elite list of companies, including Exxon Mobile, Microsoft and Apple, worth more than the entire Russian market.
