    What am I reading?

    Well, it certainly isn’t about the World Cup. Sorry, I just don’t get it. I’m too old.

    Best to all on this fine summer morning.

    The 1929 chart is dead right if we make it apples to apples…ie Dow jones in gold dollars then, Dow jones in gold now.

    Alternatively, dig out the French or German index charts for what happens when fiat currency regimes go boom. Stocks don’t go down

    re: inherited wealth: why do the right wingers say that everyone has to pull themselves up by their own jock strap except for their kids? Aren’t they harming their kids’ work ethic by doing so?

      1) the idea of privilege is a stereotype that is mostly false
      2) a number of academic studies on wealth over the last twenty years have shown that most kids of wealth work harder and longer their the middle class. that is a behavior handed down to them by their parents, and so on (that’s how the got wealthy in the first place)
