Have you noticed that the Powers that Be employ a different standard for measuring the health of America’s job market than they use for the stock market? They’re currently telling us that the job market is “improving.” What do they mean?
Simply that the economy is generating more jobs for workers. But when they talk about the stock market “improving,” they don’t mean that the number of stocks investors may purchase is on the rise. Instead, they’re measuring whether assets are generally getting more valuable and making investors richer.
