    My portfolio is growing by leaps & bounds, but my salary has been relatively flat for the past few years. Go figure?

    How does Wall Street do it? They use the miracle ingredient, fraudulence.

    If the fed stops suddenly, then I have to agree with you, but I would think that the fed is intelligent enough to slowly back down. Thus at least keeping the market stable at worst. Some downtrend is inevitable anyway. as that is the way it always is, but a total collapse is not in the cards. Sorry about that. And (as I am certain that you know) President Obama is NOT in control of the policy of the fed, just as no president has ever been!

    Wall Street is the only “industry” (and I use the term loosely) that can create money out of thin air:


    Loan money, make interest
    Create stock, sell it, make money
    Trade stock, make money
    Buy stock, make money
    Have liabilities? Sell it! Make money!
    Insure liability in case it goes bad (which it will), make money
    Cash in liability, make money
    Buy bonds, make money
    Buy currency, make money
    Buy raw materials, make money


    There is nothing these guys can’t make money out of.

    @Dycel,…. echoraven has got it correctly. The Dems and their MSM buddies are a major part of the problem.

    Factored for inflation, wages have been in steady decline since the 1970s. Must be a slow day.
