Nope you still don't appear to me that you understand the Topic



1. This is the National Retirement Strategy being SOLD to every American Worker as THE credible replacement for the Guaranteed Retirement Program of Social Security



Not as a Voluntary Supplement to the Social Security Guaranteed Retirement Program for American Workers but the Only Viable Alternative where who has the fastest Computer & is closest to the information has a irrefutable advantage



The proof of my suggestion & claims are in the Facts - in the Statistics



MORE & MORE WEALTH IS BEING CONCENTRATED IN FEWER & FEWER HANDS - YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT FOR DECADES



AND



THIS IS ALL HAPPENING DURING A PERIOD WHERE THE MOST AMERICANS EVER ARE IN THE WORK FORCE - THE BEST AMERICAN ECONOMIC ENGINE EVER IS SETTING NEW RECORDS ANNUALLY



AND



THIS GRAND AMERICAN RETIREMENT PONZI SCHEME IS ALSO SETTING NEW ANNUAL RECORDS



All Happening at the same time as these Record Number of Americans in the Work Force are losing ground in actual wages - buying power - take home earnings for a typical 40 hour work week & overall shares of Total American Wealth is being consolidated in fewer & fewer hands



THIS SYSTEM - ITS NOT WORKING -



With Social Security a good argument good be made that the US Government - the people we hired to protect our guaranteed retirement were lying to us & we as Americans should have known better



I as a American know this Stock Market Ponzi Scheme is another even bigger lie but most Americans have No Way of Knowing because No One is tasked with protecting their interests

"I as a American know this Stock Market Ponzi Scheme is another even bigger lie but most Americans have No Way of Knowing because No One is tasked with protecting their interests"

Saying that shows that you have no idea of how the stock market work.

Your posts sound you would LOVE to live in a communist country.

I believe in our system and FYI we will ALWAYS have a top 1%.

 

OUR SYSTEM IS WORKING!


And the last five communist countries in the world are:
People's Republic of China.
Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea)
Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
Lao People's Democratic Republic (Laos)
Republic of Cuba.

Not what Nick"s link is about...but business as usual.

Mick, FYI its SOP for ALL brokerage houses to gather information and its available to all their customers....like me...I use it. Its what they do.

The one per cent ... I laugh at that!

If a firm uses insider information that is against the law and that law is enforced.

Yes, the experts make a lot more money in a field they understand than do amateurs who do not understand it.

Mick, I agree 100% that the reality of the economic system is stacked against the regular Janes and Joes. And that wealth just gets more and more concentrated. So we have to do what we can on (1) a personal level and (2) a political level. My posts above were oriented toward actions of (1)...personal level ...how I keep (try to) from being skint, whilst simultaneously trying to "stick it to the man" (god, I love that line) For point (2), listen to Prof. Richard Wolff's radio show...and numerous others. I really like Prof. Wolff !

I'm not sure you understand the Topic

 

Let's try it a different way

 

A Glass of fresh water is a Mile away from both of us

 

You & I are both Thirsty & want the water

 

I have a Corvette & you have a Corvair

 

My thirst gets quenched & then I move on to the sandwich at the next mile

 

On & on it goes

 

That's just one example of the reasons why every year - year in & year out - more & more of the Wealth in the USA is concentrated in fewer & fewer hands

 

Corvettes against Corvairs & of course the keys to the cheapest gas pumps

The origins of this sort of trading had its original meltdown in the late 90"s. I only remember it because at about the same time as the LTCM meltdown and bailiout by the US FED, I was receiving phone calls from stock brokers trying to get me to invest in this sort of gambit.

My answer: why would anyone invest in something they did not understand. Apparently I was a minority of the responses and that is why we are where we are today....glad I won't be part of the next melt-down.
