Stock market values have been artificially inflated intentionally by the Federal Reserve which has been printing $85 billion per month and using it to buy securities. There is a stock market bubble, there is a housing price bubble (price increases of 15% in one year are not normal), and when the Fed stops printing money the stock market is going to tank and housing values will drop again. This is the most screwed up economy during my lifetime and the worst job market and Barack Obama is 100% to blame.

The Fed is not part of the government. They are bankers independent of the government. Certainly, the Fed buying 85 billion in bonds artificially creates more money, but the purpose is as the article says to drive investors into stocks, by driving down the value of more secure investments. Any adjustment that happens to the stock market once the fed stop their buying spree will be relatively small, because they were largely unsuccessful in convincing many that stock are a good risk. You see, many know that funds managers have disconnected themselves from understanding real value and instead use a bunch of money/paper shuffling tricks to get short term artificial gains. Perhaps if some of them knew what work is, or value, or productivity, we might invest, but it's pretty apparent that it's mostly a hoax.
