I’ve been sitting around for a time wondering what I can complain about. I have not listened to the talking heads from any network for several months and only tried to find actual world news presented in an unbiased fashion. It is virtually impossible to achieve this goal.
I do however, watch CNBC in order to track my stocks. This channel actually gives you a feel for how the economy is doing and what is causing it to stall or move forward. They say the market leads the actual economic movement. I don’t know about that, what I do know is that billions of retail buyers have left the market and many are not coming back simply because our government and its policies are so unstable.
It doesn’t seem to matter to this administration that millions of us have our retirement dollars in the market, they continue to claim all businesses are evil and should run as a break even organization and give the profit to the government so it can dole it out as it sees fit.
I guess the point of all my rambling is, the government should not be creating demons and should be working with business by creating regulations and tax laws that make sense and are consistent. Positive statements by the President instead of name calling, blame placing or demonizing would go a long way towards stabilizing the market and the business environment.
