    I am a bit baffled why everybody wants to look at the 1970s and 80s, even the late 1920s as parallels to today. If there are parallels out there, I would think the late 1800s would probably be closer to today than most of the 20th century given the huge labor force adjustments taking place worldwide as the implications of the latest technology revolution have been similar to the industrial revolution accompanied by the steam engine and electricity. We saw the major move from the farms to the cities in the 1800s and the early 1900s and now many of those types of jobs have been vanishing over the past 30 years requiring new labor force shifts. That was also a period of huge income inequality and rolling booms and busts with financial crises.

    Talk about comparing apples and hand grenades. The bull market that started in 1982 broke out to new highs that year, with the Dow breaking through 1000 with conviction and never looking back. This bull market didn’t break out to new highs until 2013 in the S&P. The low in 2009 was a generational low, and if you want to start counting there, you need to go back to 1974 for a comparison that makes sense.
