the only thing that matters if the vehicle goes up or down; nothing else matters; what is really on bank's books? it doesn't matter; are we solvent as a country? it doesn't matter; is there a 50% uneployment rate? it doesn't matter;
the only thing that matters is if I can get you to buy something I own at a higher price than I paid OR get you to sell at a lower price than you paid;
This isreally the problem with this country. No one wants to roll up their sleeves and get dirty. Most money made is made pushing paper around. It looks like they cleaned out the longs now they want to clean out the shorts and put everyone back to work.
