An interesting observation.
If stocks were priced correctly from the get go during their IPO, there should be no profit left over for secondary investors - i.e. - sheeple throwing their money into 401k's and IRA's.
But when you factor in exterior forces such as tripling the money supply, artificially low interest rates, an entire industry contingent on churning investments, and sheep flooding the market because "I sure hope dem der stocks go up in value," you get an anomaly of a forever increasing stock market.
But don't let me be the party pooper to you guys forever making magical money by not working or expending labor.
