Here is the problem.  If market values were sinking fast and hard, Americans of modest means and Americans of low income would be suffering even more.  


Going forward, the priority should be single-payer, universal basic health care for all Americans.

The Rich Are Cheering Wall Street’s Latest Records. Americans of Modest Means Are Draining 401(k)s.
The all-time record highs that Wall Street has registered this week have given some Americans — the nation’s already rich — considerable cause for celebration.

And the rest of the nation? Tens of millions of Americans are paying precious little attention to the chirpy tale of Wall Street’s ticker. The simple reason: They own no stocks at all. Millions of other Americans who do own stocks don’t see any reason to celebrate either. They’re finding themselves forced, amid pandemic economic collapse, to start selling the stocks that make up the bulk of their retirement savings.

How best to start understanding this story? The best place to begin: The latest numbers on stock ownership from the Federal Reserve. Fed researchers have been tracking who exactly owns the stocks that trade every business day on Wall Street ever since 1989.

Back nearly 30 years ago, in 1992, the share of stock nationally that belongs to America’s poorest half of households hit an all-time high. That “high” amounted to all of a miniscule 1.6 percent.

How much of America’s stock wealth does the bottom 50 percent hold these days? At the end of this past June, the most recent Federal Reserve data point available, the nation’s poorest half held less than 1 percent of the nation’s stock holdings, just 0.6 percent.

The nation’s poorest 90 percent, all combined, now hold just 11.8 percent of the nation’s stocks. (...)

Easy enough, if willing...
Dombrovskis repeated an EU offer that the bloc was ready to suspend its measures at any time if the United States did the same, “whether under the current or the next administration.”
But tit for tat tends to work...

On a new form of economy slowly emerging, named as 'Purpose Economy' 


Perhaps, some already know the web-search engine named Ecosia? Or the online marketplace software Sharetribe? The traditional optical and optic-electronics manufacuring Zeiss? They have opted for what is called steward ownership, or purpose economy, among many other companies, and their numbers keep growing.  
 
An example of a newly emerging form of doing business started by young people...

It's now a problem, because someone else is better at it/benefits more.

Economists on the Run

Paul Krugman and other mainstream trade experts are now admitting that they were wrong about globalization: It hurt American workers far more than they thought it would.

Rabobank: The Response To The Fed's Minutes Make You Feel Many People Are Gargling The Bong Water

"We have to explain to the public far better why we are buying the assets of cash-rich mega companies that does nothing to help struggling SMEs and those on Main Street who can’t borrow, and which also exacerbates both irrevocable market and real economy distortions, such as it is."
