Let's say the original TARP and bailout funds, what was the real purpose of them? They didn't help the unemployment rate. They didn't boost the real economy. But they did prop the stock market. Was this all a plan to allow the elite to exit the market at previous highs? Now, SnP has downgraded our debt. Who does this benefit? It seems it might benefit banks who could make more money from other spreads. Is this a message from the global elite bankers that they are no longer concerned about a US recovery? Who wins? Who losses? This will tell us the real story. Always a winner and a loser.
