    It has to be slow, it sucks but when you force it, all sorts of problems that would be dealt with easily over the long term, manifest themselves more greatly in the short term.
    That creates all sorts of unwanted short term havoc.

    A hands off market boom, to see where the natural want for growth heads.
    The real problem is they don't see that boom in the near future. What will energise the next boom? There is no "invest in" such and such business.. "it's the future" talk going on. It's almost like economist have ran out of answers for their science.

    No, the normal people are waking up in the morning, checking DP, and they realized how simple this question is. Capitalism brings everyone's wages up, not just the rich. The poor of today are much, much better off than they were 50 years ago.

    It's hard to see.
    If you believe in spontaneous order, things will come together eventually.
    The collaboration of millions of people in free exchange will help create another boom in "something."

    Yeah but the market doesn't react well to "uncertainty".

    Kind of an ambiguous claim, don't you think?

    Uncertainty can be many things.
    It doesn't help when our political leaders flip and flop over what they want to do to people in the market.

    There isn't any ambiguity in that claim.. if you don't know where to invest then you don't.
