I finally figured out who Jordan is. He is the champion of all sarcasm posters on zerohedge who goes by the title MillionDollarBonus.
Seriously, though, your posts lack any deep understanding of the structural problems with our market and economy and in the end just appear to be market chearleading. I think we all agree that anyone can increase their economic wealth in this environment. Work hard, increase your competiveness, cut down spending/debt, etc will all contribute to this. But to completely discount the massive western debts, bond/stock bubble, massive interventions by central banks is truly absurd. If you are such a believer in this amazing recovery, where would your beloved S&P 500 be if the Federal Reserve came out tomorrow and announced a plan to sell 2 trillion in fixed income assets? Would anyone really be foolish enough to make a bid on any fed assets, with a looming 2 trillion dollar sale? Where would home prices be if mortgage rates were at 7-8 percent? These are questons you need to answer honestly. If you do, you will begin to understand that this economy is only being held up by massive interventions and investors dumb enough like yourself to believe in "money for nothing and chicks for free".
