Hey for those who were around back in the 70's and 80's I was wondering how stocks were perceived before the secular bull that started in 1982. What kind of environment were investors facing in the late 70's? How would you charecterize sentiment back then? What about 1987-88? I read in Market Wizards, many were bearish, Jim rogers among others. There were talks of a collapse of the financial system, unsustainable deficit, dollar going down the drain ... Sounds a lot like ... today actually!
