Who loses out if the stock market collapses?
People with lots of money in the stock market.
It seems to me that the rise and fall of the stock market really doesn't affect Mainstreet. It doesn't create jobs, or expand businesses. The
current way the stock market is ran, it is just another gambling casino.
Businesses that are making money will continue to make money.
Any growth to the actual markets, where legitimate goods and services are traded, comes from start ups not the big corporations.
If anything, the big corporations do more harm than good, and destroy innovation and new markets as quickly as they can.
Look at the internet revolution. There is a good example of a booming industry destroyed by the stock market and big corporations.
Once the big corporations took over, innovation stopped.
