What's pathetic is this country has learned nothing since 2000, and certainly nothing since 2008. By the Fed and others reinforcing the debt/consumption model, you're continuing to kick the can down the road to future generations.
And artificially inflating the stock market does not mean the money will trickle down to the middle class, nothing could be further from the truth. The rich will continue to get richer, they may spend more at Coach and Tiffanys, but the rest of the country will continue to struggle, because they're mandated by the Federal Reserve to buy everything on credit, even if you can't afford it, get into more debt, and continue to consume over your head so the economy can improve until the model fails all over again.
Simply put, there is no final demand, no sustained growth for this economy, and like all other bubbles, this one will end really badly.
