COMMENTARY BY HARRY GORMAN #2


STOCK MARKET – “Magical Money Machine”.

It NEVER Reflects True Health of the Economy

Wall Street and its Stock Exchange; a rich man’s luxury

Originally it was designed to finance industry.


Lots of folks invested, to help America grow;

HANG THEM IN THE HALL OF SHAME!


Now, too often, it’s become a gambler’s rodeo.


Today, the market’s up, then thousand-thirty nine,

How quickly we forget the Crash of ‘29

This ‘easy-buck’ assumption is purely self-delusion

Those figures up on the screen are nothing but illusion


Those numbers are supposed to show the health of industry

But, paper profits on a screen won’t feed a family.

Every other day, it seems, we see yet another expensively suited, somewhat subdued financial big-shot being hauled off to court or to jail.

How disgusting! These are among the “pillars of society: — the well-bred, intelligent, men and women, educated in our most venerable universities where, sandwiched between their classes in business administration, humanities and philosophy – – they picked up the basics of a more sinister skill – GREED.

These are all family men, with expensive homes in upscale communities, manicured lawns, lovely swimming pools with bars attached – – all lorded over by men and even women with SOILED SOULS!


Are these stock market manipulators, predators, and outright thieves good for our ailing economy? . . . NO!


PLEASE do not forgive them, FATHER, for THEY KNOW DAMNED WELL WHAT THEY DO!
