    The rich land on the cushion. For everyone else, it’s bricks.

    Love that last panel. I still remember a few years ago, when the DOW went up a few thousand points in what seemed like no time. I saw no reason for that rise then, and I see no particular reason for the plunge now.

    China owns everything anyway. Whether the stock market goes up or down. My concerns is who is going to buy us next when China finally tanks.

    And he gets paid seven figures, folks, because he’s smarter than the rest of us.

    P.S. Even if we wall in the entire US border, all the world’s economies will still be linked.

    Actually, reports coming out of China say that their Factories (Thanks Apple) have polluted so Much of the country that they are on the verge of the Worst Environmental Collapse since the Dinosaurs got wiped out.
    .
    When some of their Rivers got so polluted you could use the Water to Kill Roaches, some of those factories began Drilling Holes in the ground and pumping the toxic waste underground.
    .
    Oh, Wait, where did you say the Drinking Water was located?

    Sounds like a republican paradise.

    That’s and example of govt saving Capitalism again and again.

    China is a Libertarian example of what the Republicans and Libertarians want again, what we use to have. Unregulated totally. It is a disaster then, now and always. Too bad the China leadership didn’t do their history work. Or simply think about it. They should not be surprised at all with this outcome.

    The nation run by the Communist Party is a Republican and Libertarian goal? Who knew?

    Would that it were simply bricks. In reality it’s more like boulders interspersed with sharpened rebar, punji stakes and broken glass. No matter how hard you try to get out (assuming that you survived the fall in the first place) you’re either going to leave good-sized chunks of yourself behind, or bring good-sized chunks of your circumstance with you — and your ALWAYS going to have the scars to remind you of it.

    Market drops, halt trading, FED loans money at zero percent to the big funds, funds buy on open, market goes up.
    What’s hard to understand about that system? I even gave you an accounting slip on it a few days ago.

    You have inspired me to go look up and listen to Careful With That Axe, Eugene.

    @superposition
    It doesn’t have anything to do with the Global economy aside from the fact that many Chinese companies and individuals do own certain larges portions of fungible assets in the U.S. when those are sold to cover losses who will be buying them? It won’t be us.

    Just change that golden cushion to a golden parachute; that is the reality.

    Thanks to the Fed’s policies of QE the stock market isn’t really a fair indicator of economic health, but rather just an expensive study on stock market confidence. It would be going up regardless, because of the monies that are being poured into it by the Federal Reserve.
