THE DOW JONES TANGO
Over the last few weeks I’ve been watching the Dow Jones Industrial Average playing with the 13000 point barrier. It is like a weird flirtation. The total gets close, and then pulls back. It shoots up just over the line, and then drops back under. And this is what I see and hear in the back of my mind as I watch this macro economic dance – two lovers, in the dark, approaching climax….
INVESTORS: I want to shoot this thing up to 14000! 15000! Yeah, baby, yeah! Give me all you got!
DJIA: No! No! We can’t!
INVESTORS: Why? Why not? I am just ready to explode, baby, you got me so hot to invest! I want to pour all of my money into you, every last coin!
DJIA: No, we can’t! We just can’t! We have to wait!
INVESTORS: Why wait?? The time is right! The economy is improving, the housing market is coming back, unemployment is at a four year low! Consumer confidence is surging!
INVESTORS: Surging, I say! It is time to crank this thing up to 11!!
INVESTORS: Yeah, baby, yeah! 13! 14! 15! The Sky’s the limit! There is so much pent up demand! So much money tied up in savings accounts struggling to get out! It has to get out! Out!!!
DJIA: I know! I know! I want it too! But we can’t!!
INVESTORS: In the name of Adam Smith, why? Why can’t we do this??
DJIA: Because if we do, Barak Obama will get reelected!!!
INVESTORS: Just stop thinking about Obama! Think of money!!! Lots and lots of money!!!!
DJIA: Yes! Oh, yes!
INVESTORS: Come on, baby, take us over the top! Let me push you past 13000!!!
DJIA: I want to, but I just can’t stop thinking about Obama!
INVESTORS: Damn it!
