Paul Tava Posted over 2 years ago The Dow is steadily improving while the national quality of life is consistently worsening. The DOW has been inflated like a ballon with massive amounts of money (i.e. debt). $1.5+ tillion from the FED in the way of treasury bonds, $5+ trillion of US debt from the Federal in US treasury bonds, $1+ trillion in Dept of Education backed Student loans, plus the entire housing "recovery" financed by the government entites like (FNMA, Freddie Mac, FHA, etc.) The ballon will soon pop.
