Dow Jones has nothing to do with most of us - it is just one of the preferred casinos at which the financial elite play (with your money).
Fast growth seems to be what Americans desire, but have we not learned?
Don't we remember the story of the Three Little Pigs?
In an effort to quickly build a home with maximum profits, one pig (Wall Street) chose to use inexpensive straw.
Sure, the house went up quickly but it could not stand up against an attack.
The next pig (The Government) decided to use sticks.
Sure, this had more strength than the house of straw but it too failed against an attack.
The third pig (US) chose to take his time to build a solid structure.
Size and speed were not important - only strength and stability.
This house withstood the attack and enabled all three pigs to survive.
