You don't seem to have any knowledge in the economic policies of your country. The FED is currently letting the bubble burst but as soon as the stock market decline reaches levels threatening the image and future of this country, they will do everything possible to take the market high. And believe me we are almost there. This is a period when badly managed companies are let go bankcrupt. And the survivors will be rewarded big time... And don't compare this recession to the 1930's because then the US didn't have any super power ambitions.
