A Story of Lost Suitors

Once upon our time a young carefree American population became consumed by the lust and desire to gain more and more money. An itch slowly turned into an insatiable appetite to attract the opposite sexy sectors.

The stock pickers in the fields of Wall Street fell head over heels for greedy gain. The love affair with stocks became an emotional gyration of worship or abomination: One day the analyst will fall in love with a stock at $60 but if his love is ill founded a divorce is announced when the stock is trading at $15. This is a very costly affair. Why didn't the analyst keep his affair a secret?

Today in America 86,000,000 million people are invested in the stock market and all have been invited to the wedding. Will it be a fairy tale of mutual fund respect or a story of a romance that ended on the rocks of ignorance?

For a lasting relationship we must know all about our partner before we commit ourselves to an agreement that could end abruptly. Love soon turns to hate -- Greed to fear.

The way the public has been hoodwinked by the establishment is nothing short of a money hunting suitor looking for a dumb rich bride. The folks who organize the wedding get paid no matter if the wedding is a success or not. So it is with the stock market. Each brick in the stock brokers building is paid for by the guests invited to the wedding taking place in the grand ballroom of investments.

Oh! What fun we had. We were wined and dined. There were many fine speeches of how "It is different this time" We clapped and cheered as our stocks rose for encore after encore. We enjoyed our conjugal rights issues, not to mention the IPO's (Intoxicate and Pass Out) Then with a final bow last March the illusion went pop.

Now the love affair is over and we count the cost. It is always the innocent that get hurt when the deception of a treacherous impostor is assumed as our truths. The stock market is a ravenous master-baiter that sends out it's match makers in search of the gullible. A labyrinth of tangled information and misinformation leaves guests scratching their heads in a jungle of confusion.

Many folks are now counting the cost of the match makers from hell. And yet most of the matchmakers were innocent young men and women who believed the lies of greed fed by amour-propre on the rampage.

The ego is a monster liar and will send out many invitations to engage in a matrimony of money and wealth. This double-dealing "end - dead' as an undertaking of bankrupt partners.

A divorce from our hard earned money has been an affair with no lawyers needed to part us from our money. Folks lose their highly paid jobs as brokers and analysts, whist the shell shocked investor walks home broke. A fine affair has ended and the participant are poorer but wiser.

But are they?

The next bull market is seen in the distance by a young scout who has been sent out to groom a beau to match up with the most beautiful nuptial stock in the world. As a new love story begins we hear the wind rattle the pain of a widow who's dead portfolio rests in pieces. --M. L.

If we leap to far to fast we may need to backtrack a little. If the gap we made is too large we will jump into the hole we made. --M. L.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
