The Gov't Plan for a Perpetual Bull Market

Discussion in 'Economics' started by MKTrader, Mar 24, 2010.

  1. 1) Force everyone to buy stocks. If they don't have any money, tax the productive non-slackers (oops, I meant the "rich") so they can "share the wealth."

    2) If they refuse to buy stocks, fine them. Tax them. Jail them. Make them long for the days of King George III!

    3) If they sell or, even worse, short, do the fine/tax/jail thing again.

    4) Exempt the upper echelons of government from these rules. They're too important and besides, they may want to buy gold or something.

    Why not? The precedent is in place unless the states can stop this madness...
