the only thing we have to fear is fear itself - investors have convinced themselves that a big old bad boogey man is under their bed. Plain and simple the snakes are loose in the mind of the market. The reality is it's nowhere close to being as bad as everyone thinks it is - it's just that every single negative report gets told a 1,000 times over in the news and the investor sentiment is just shell shocked.
All you need to get rich is some cash and a pair of balls.
The news media will not be happy until they drive everyone off a cliff. Geez these guys are train riders, up and down. Cheerleaders now gloom and doomers. It is almost amusing to read the supposed business writers.
