Our current economy is based one one thing. BIG. Big business - as in too big to fail, and BIG government.<quoted text>Your right, right now the stock market is probably not reflecting an anti-business bias due to the fact that low interest rates and printing money is the ultimate trump card regarding the stock market. However, our economy IS reflecting an anti-business bias from our government. Low employment, low GDP, low consumer confidence index, high debt, high deficits, etc. are all very severe symptoms of a broken economy.
The stock market does not reflect the REAL US economy, it only reflects the BIG business economy. The FED is feeding the stock market with low interest rates and printed money. Major corporations are using those absurdly low interest rates to buy back their own stock. Short term transactions make more profit than selling their products. They don't care. Revenue is revenue.
What's missing is the fact that small business is and has always been the biggest employer in this country. But this president does not understand small business. Indeed, I don't think he likes small business.
Until the Pete's in this world, and I exclude the OT's, since his small business is by his own admission now a hobby instead of a thriving employer, feel confident enough to once again put their balls on the line, this country will continue to watch the stock market make the rich, richer, the government get bigger. and the poor get poorer.
And I'll listen to people like OT make fun of my lemonade stand, and the the soda man who takes poor people's food stamps and converts them into cash.
All I know is that Pete's business can stand another two years without sales, yet we listen to a guy who used to run a good business that was destroyed by Republicans (tobacco destroyed by Republicans?) who names himself "Overtaxed" and yearns for more taxes paid by people other than himself.
Gotta go. There's another food stamp recipient with a load of "pop". "Chuckles".
