Market perspective—“just let them die”

Investors in the stock market are idealists. They value figments of the imagination more than reality. So, quite naturally, they have little sympathy for real people.
However, it should be noted that those who dabble in the stock market are less lethal than, for example, George W. Bush, who sent the U.S. military to bomb the cradle of civilization into smithereens and killed millions to bring them the democracy that, according to the Republican playbook is short for “choose your own poison.”
