Comment: Only about 10 per cent

(See in situ)

Only about 10 per cent

....of Americans own stocks. How is this an indicator of the general health of an economy?

Of course the market is up and so is the price of everything in general since the time period on that chart. I really do not get what the fuss is about. Until the 100 million or so taxpayers have had enough of carrying the ball for the team.....nothing will happen imo.
