    … or is the DOW *INDEX* being “managed” — not the companies themselfves? … 50% drop from top of the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) Index *so far* (it’s still dropping)… And this is a strong economy (i.e. no debt) … But the DOW is still up around 12,800 — not even 10% off from its peak and the US is in debt up to its eyeballs. What’s up with that? Answer: Two things: Market Intervention (a.k.a. the Plunge Protection Team) and massive monetary inflation. Bernanke is trying to create stagflation like the 70s to avoid a depression like the 30s, but the both the US Dollar and US government both had much more respect (and trust) in the eyes of international lenders in 1970 than they do now (i.e. they no longer think they’re going to get their money back), so Bernanke’s stagflation goal has an excellent chance of becoming hyperinflation.
