Your right Stephanie, there is nothing underpinning it. This house of cards has already collapsed once and with idiots like this guy will probably do it again. It is just like the US dollar. The only thing standing behind it is the US government and they can’t agree that the sky is blue. The dollar used to be backed by gold but no more. The reason that this character thinks that he can’t lose is that if and when he loses his butt he can start crying and run to congress for a bailout. What was it Willy Nelson said in his song “The Gambler” ….“the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.” Stock shares these days should come with a cyanide pill attached in case the whole thing turns turtle there is a way out.
