So here's the thing. I hear a lot of people, those on ATS included, worried about a market crash and their stocks losing value. If you think the market will crash, why don't you sell a good portion of your positions and short the market? That's what I'm doing and many others are too.edit on 6-10-2011 by mossme89 because: (no reason given)
The members of Occupy Wall Street may be as unwieldy, paradoxical, and inconsistent as those of us living in the real world. But that is precisely why their new approach to protest is more applicable, sustainable and actionable than what passes for politics today. They are suggesting that the fiscal operating system on which we are attempting to run our economy is no longer appropriate to the task. They mean to show that there is an inappropriate and correctable disconnect between the abundance America produces and the scarcity its markets manufacture. And in the process, they are pointing the way toward something entirely different than the zero-sum game of artificial scarcity favoring top-down investors and media makers alike.

You are so right. The people who lose their savings of the fake colored paper will be devestated but the ones who never had the pretty paper will also be destroyed. We are all equal when the fake colored paper is removed.
This will give us a chance to put together a new system. I actually hope we enter the Age of Aquarius.edit on 7-10-2011 by Buford2 because: (no reason given)
