Stock Market:
Riding a Wild Bull

Nov 12, 2018

Last month, the stock market dropped like a rock. And that worried workers who had put some of their hard-earned savings in the market. Many watched online as their savings evaporated day after day.

Sure, there has been a small recovery since then. But for how long?

In fact, the stock market is a great big house of cards, built on record amounts of debt and all kinds of other corporate scams.

It’s just like a giant casino run by finance firms and banks, which seduces customers with the hope of making easy money. But in the end, the house always wins – by taking all our money – before the whole thing crumbles.
