the great delusion

Someone please explain this to me ...

As the world slides further and further into despair, war, conflict, and poverty, the US stock markets continue to set record breaking numbers and make insane profits. They don't seem to take any notice any more to the flailing status of the US Dollar, the failed war strategy, or the looming threat of inflation.


What the hell are they paying attention to? Doesn't the economy have to be tied to something stronger than a simple wish for it to be doing well? Isn't this dangerous?

I honestly don't understand it.

GM stock always rises when they announce thousands of lay-offs, too. I don't get it. But I've given up trying to understand because the people reporting don't understand either. They just always make up reasons for ups and downs and speculate.
