« The liberal media | Main | Sunday Beinhart --Who's the economy for? »

November 22, 2008


It's true that the Economic Policy Institute link that you cited reported that less than one half of American households were invested in the stock market.

But just barely. The percentage who weren't invested in the stock market was 51. That means 49% of American households did, in fact, own stock.

If you have a 401(K) or contribute to a pension fund from, for example, a labor union, you, like almost half of American households, own stock.

That's why fixing the Wall Street mess is important to Main Street.
