21. One does not have to "believe trickle down works" to realize
that Wall Street crashing is not good, and not in our interests. We didn't like it happening in 1929 and we don't like it now. It means misery.

It isn't pure gambling, it is about figuring out which goods and services will sell. We all need a job involving something someone else is willing to pay for.

We probably have to deal with the reality that we would not live as well as we do if we had nothing but small businesses that only served locally. The rest of the world would pass us by. Find a country that is like that and I'll show you a third world country.
