Largely Led by financials, oil and companies that may benefit from a relaxing of "regulation" in general.

I am remember getting a Dow 3000 button at work once. Yeesh.

Thanks, Obama! :)
Only in today's America can policy be based on the notion that the rich have too little and the poor have too much.

Almost every administration sees a rotation in where money wants to go.

In the crapper now? Pharma and retail.

Facebook and Apple seem to be recovering from fears of doing business under Trump.

All it takes is one geo-political event to short circuit the good.

Republicans want it both ways. The economy was much worse than was being reported and that was Obama's fault. But hey, Trump wins the election and now the Dow flirts with 20,000. Economy all fixed in just a coupl'a weeks.

Given the GOP knack for letting Wall Street run wild, and this incoming administration, with its top Wall Street insider picks and the deregulation that'll inevitably ensue -- this has all the markings of another economic catastrophe that'll strike this country. And Trump's Wall Street insiders will be there to take all of Main Street's money. Or whatever's left that Wall Street didn't steal from them during the Bush II years.

Dow 20,000 -- what a fucking joke. Time to inflate that bubble again.

Yeah, you never insult me. If I responded in kind, you'd demand an apology and then go crying to Edgy to help you, (as if he could), wouldn't you? What is it that compelled you to write this post, over the top with nastiness and personally directed at me, that has nothing to do with anything?


Boy, any second now, MGIM's gonna write that my response to you is uncalled for.

I agree that it's folly to fall in line with the thinking that the Dow Jones Industrial Average measures American progress. It indicates wealthier investors, but not necessarily wealthy workers or economic expansion.

George Will and I part ways on this issue. And on Tony LaRussa, to be sure.
I'll be your patron saint of heartbreak.

It's as newsworthy (and thread worthy) as anything else we kick around here year
after year regardless of what's driving it or what may happen in the coming months.

It's obvious that you were totally full of shit last week when you threw an embarrassing temper tantrum shit-fit, supposedly because I wrote an off-topic Trump post in the Baseball Forum that wasn't even addressed to you or anybody. That Trump post was just an excuse to insult me.

Especially when you consider that in this country, a tiny speck of a fraction of a fraction of one percent of the population owns about half of all of the wealth.

This wasn't a political post, guys. It's a historical news item and I
followed up because I was weeks off.

Jeez.

That was after you called me a village idiot. Should have just left it alone. I will ignore you from here on. Best of luck in your future endeavors.

And I called you a village idiot after you bombed me several times with ad hominem insults. What a hypocrite. So now what? Now you're mad at me because you said I'm "broke"?
