Not sure if you understand this or not. I am assuming you do, but I suspect there are many reading this blog that don't.
The stock market really has nothing to do with the economy. It is really just a gauge of how much liquidity is in the system at any given time. The only reason the stock market is back near its all-time highs (S&P 500)is because of the QE programs. If not for that, then it would be much, much lower. That is why the economy can be weak and the stock market high, like it is now. Bernanke and company target the stock market to change perception, because they know that people will assume that everything is much better when it really isn't. Also, they are trying to create a "wealth effect." Unfortunately, the average person outside of their 401k doesn't own stocks. Not only do we need to get rid of Obaba, but Bernanke needs to go, too.
Understood. But it doesn't gradually increase because of that reason. True, fake money always bumps the market up, and DumBama has done that a few times.

I still say that it's multinational companies that have been carrying the market on their backs. Just an example, a year or so ago I took note of all the KFC chicken places closing up. All the outlets around me did, so I became suspicious. I looked around on the net and found an explanation.

It seems that KFC is uprooting most of their stores and building them in China. Americans have become so cheap, they won't even spend a good buck on good food, so KFC was not making enough money and closed down the lowest performing restaurants.

They are still an American company though with a few places left. But their real money is in China where the people cannot get enough KFC, and they are not even selling Chicken there.

I absolutely agree with you. Conditions are very different since B.O, took office. It's amazing, really, how many homes, jobs, small businesses no longer exist. But, that's just plain 'silly' to you, eh?

Oh noes! Your Hershey Buddy will think that is incestuous talk. I'm sure he will be crying and blowing his nose in his mother's hem, as soon as he reads this post. He might be so upset that he will pump up his inner tube and dream about the good old days, just to comfort himself.

It's a hoot what a few facts do to you. It's like the seasons. You make a ridiculous claim, I post links proving you are wrong, you try to change the subject, then you regress to poop comments like a 6 year old. Then every 4 cycles, like leap year, you tell us what you had for lunch or dinner to make us want to be you. Easy.

Yep. When it comes to fast food, few are more expensive than KFC. But unlike all the other fast food places like McDonanld's and Burger King, KFC tastes the exact same way it did 40 years ago or so.

When I was a kid, fast food was a special treat. With most women working today, it's almost a standard at least a couple times a week. Going to McDonalds will run a mother about twenty bucks or so. Going to KFC would be more like thirty or more. So when they desire chicken and don't want McNuggets, they run to Church's or Popeye's.

Dispatch Services Funding:

USA Labor Law, the Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Demands every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer funding cost of dispatch services. With money derived from wages (union contract), investment and independent business profit.

This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay for dispatch services. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

Go back to 1971 when Nixon ended the Bretton Woods system where foreign countries could no longer convert (redeem) their U.S. dollars for gold. Nixon essentially broke all ties between the dollar and gold and gave the government, with the federal reserve as an accomplice, the ability to expand the money supply infinitely. This also allowed the the government to start running huge deficits because the money was no longer backed by anything.
Now, go look at a chart of the S&P 500 starting around 1971. It was trading below 200. From there it pushed ever higher into March of 2000 at a peak of 1527, where the bubble then popped and crashed. Since then, we had a higher high in 2007, and , currently, we are working on another one.

You might say that the economy expanded tremendously during that time (1971-2000). Well, I can't deny that, but one must ask why it expanded, not including population growth. The main reason the economy expanded was the massive expansion of the money supply. If I could post a chart here to illustrate it, I would. Money supply is controlled initially by the Fed and then secondarily through the fractional reserve banking system. All money starts out as a loan. The boom of the 90's was fueled by debt. Everything comes from debt. In fact, our money is actually backed by debt. The Fed controlls all this. Think of the Nasdaq bubble that popped in 2000 and the recent housing bubble. These bubbles were spawned from the Fed and they were really part of a bigger bubble known as a debt bubble or debt super cycle. They popped because they were created from debt, they were simply inflated with cheap money, they had no real value.

The collapse of 08' was nothing but the system trying to deleverage, same with the Nasdaq bubble in 2000. Another name for it is deflation. Both bubbles popped because the Fed started raising interest rates. Remember that the Fed is basically incompetent and they always do too much or too little. They are playing God and don't really know what the hell they are doing.

So, basically, I will stick with my belief that the stock market is nothing but a gauge of how much liquidity is in the system at any given time. Now, essentially, you could say the same about the economy in general. When liquidity is added, the economy expands; when liquidity is taken out, the economy shrinks. However, the stock market is a better gauge or proxy because you can visualize it as a simple index - S&P 500 - with price levels.
Basically, you got several idiots led by Bernanke who are trying to micro manage the entire economy by manipulating interest rates and money supply.

I wish I could explain this better, but I don't have time and it really is a difficult thing to try to explain because it is very complex and I have never really been that good at explaining comlex things.

We can blame politicians all we want. However, until we change our monetary system, nothing will really change. We don't really need the Federal Reserve to manipulate interest rates or the money supply. Actually, if the free market were allowed to set interest rates through natural supply and demand, we wouldn't have the nasty boom/busts that we've endured over the years. Of course, politicians like the Fed because it allows them to be fiscally irresponsible and spend, spend, spend. Remember, that inflation is the result of the Fed and it is a hidden tax.

Harvard: Liberals in Name Only

There are two universal truths everybody knows (or thinks they know) about Harvard. The first is that people who go here are “wicked smaht,” while the second, albeit not by much, is that people who go here are wicked liberal. Even individuals who know nothing about the Ivy League, New England, or college in general accept those beliefs as infallible. Pundits are wont to refer to the school as the bastion of liberalism, while conservatives hurl it as an insult to the left.

My political psychology professor always talks about the lack of conservatives to compose an externally valid sample set among Harvard students. And my conservative grandmother did not want me to apply to Ivy League schools in fear that they would transform me into Cornel West. Harvard, in other words, is a laboratory for wide-eyed utopians with grand ideas but little understanding of the real world problems that face the conservative everyman.

My father went to Harvard to receive a Masters in Business Management; and then again for advanced Management.

He would tell you Harvard is full of spoiled children who never had to earn a thing in life except grades.

His second time at Harvard he was in his early forties. He was there because of the resources Harvard has to propel him in his career with skill sets he can utilize in his job.

That was 30 years ago.

30 years ago there also was no Federal Board of Education.

The liberal machine did a magnificent job of brainwashing all of our kids in public schools and at the University level.

Problem today is that the people are living the failure of what was taught; and first hand reaping what was sowed.

When you run out of other peoples money....party is over.

When they come demanding more money to double down on failure the population is saying hold on a minute.

If the liberals think a ride over the falls is such a great idea, then let them separate themselves from society to continue on with their experiment with their own money.
