The Dow has gained about 5000 points since January 2017. That is about 25%.

Know one with a lick of sense believes that it will continue in this mode. However, it is still the best investment around.

"THE UNITED STATES MILITARY INDUSTRY SUCCESS IS THE ENVY OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD! " The vast majority of the aircraft used by Canada are manufactured in the US. They call their front line fighter aircraft a CF=188. However, it is a version of our F-18 Hornet.

GOP is wrecking your retirement savings

Quote:
The GOPTaxScam was the straw that broke the markets’ back. Here’s why and how.

First, America is hugely in debt (known as “overleveraged” in econ wonkspeak).

There’s over $1.4 trillion in student debt, a number never, ever before seen in the US, and nonexistent in the rest of the world because we’re the only developed country in the world that makes students pay so much for college that they can’t attend without taking out loans.

Consumer credit card debt is over $1 trillion (the highest in history), because people have been using household debt (including low-interest of mortgages and car loans for a total of $13 trillion, a record) to maintain what was once a middle-class lifestyle, once easy with a union job.

This trend has been going on ever since Reagan declared war on working people in 1981 and began the process of destroying good union jobs.

As a result, wages have been flat or declining for over 30 years. Corporations, feeding off artificially low interest rates provided by the Fed, are also massively in debt. In fact, one of the most common hustles running over the past 7 years has been to borrow billions at less than 1% interest rate and “invest” that borrowed money in the stock market that’s been giving much higher returns than bonds.
