1987 Stock Market Crash Shows How Short Selling In 2008 Is Crushing America
The stock market crash of 1987 seemingly taught America how to protect its markets. We have forgotten.
Laws were enacted to protect America from a recurrence of such an event, but the laws that protect us the most have been discarded while those that merely draw out the process live on.
The core of the problem in the stock market today is not the economy. It is not the drop in home prices. It isn’t even the overplayed “mortgage crisis”. It is SHORT SELLERS!
Short sellers can manipulate markets, especially those with large capital bases, using fear as their primary mechanism for fast money. They can cause market sell-offs, pay for false rumors and news articles (propaganda/lies), and drive a stock into sudden collapse. They love to play on fear, because it results in much more dramatic moves in stocks than greed, but in all honesty, it is just greed by the billionaires and hedge funds to play off middle class investment dollars.
