... actually in tumultous times for the people who have lots of money and who work, don't protest.

The "protest culture" that has been manufactured over the last little while is simply a distraction for the nonworking classes, who are basically fucked.

You'd have to be a complete fucking moron to have any faith in the stock market.

The invisible hand became very visible in 2008, and its connected to a bunch of used car salesmen that are selling you bullshit.

Actual gold and real estate.

We see chaos and racism and police brutality and rising seas.

Investors see one of theirs in charge, a deregulation advocate with a massive infrastructure mandate

This is just something that the large number of people who got fucked over in 2008 say. Lots of people had a small blip (and stock market investing tends to be long-term, so some years you lose money--it sucks, but it happens) and have since then, due to the "print money" strategy gone on to make huge gains.

The rich and the upper middle class retired boomers are doing _just fine_. It's their children/grandchildren who are screwed. hearing them talk about it is sort f creepy, it's like they _don't care_.
