The Capture of our Government by Wall Street: A 70 Percent Stock Market Rally lines up with an Additional 2.7 Million Jobs Lost since March of 2009. How Wall Street Reflects the Interest of the Corporatocracy and not the Real Economy.

It is a sight to behold that the stock market is rallying since the March 2009 low even though we have officially lost an additional 2,700,000+ jobs since that time.  That is right, the system is so upside down right now that somehow nearly 3 million jobs lost is worthy of a nearly 70 percent […]

S&P 500 Over Priced: With 97% of Companies Reporting Q2 Earnings the PE Ratio is Now at 129. The Most Over Hyped Market Rally Ever.

There is probably no better indicator of market volatility than the current price to earnings ratio of the S&P 500.  The market volatility is spectacular and we are seeing more gyrations in this recession than we did during the Great Depression.  Since March when the S&P 500 touched the 666 mark, the rally has boosted […]
