While Old BS rants against Wall Street, corporate profits and banks, average Americans, especially union members, depend on solid Wall Street and stock market performance and growing corporate earnings and dividends.
Private and public pension funds, IRAs and 401ks all depend on growing corporate earnings and growth in stock prices. Millions more of average Americans depend on dividends and capital gains as a source of income including millions of seniors. About 50% of all Americans own stocks directly or through retirement accounts.
As is typical with the far left, BS has no sense of the interrelationship of just about everything, he sees no connection, no consequences, but goes merrily on his way with quick, compassionate sounding quips.
The only major pension funds not investing in stocks are the federal employee pension trusts that are required by law to invest only in treasury bonds – thereby raising the cost of the plans to taxpayers.
