What are your thoughts about the stock market? Do you fear it? Does it excite you? Do you think it is under-regulated? Over-regulated? The nation's economic heartsblood? A nest of vipers? A way to build wealth? A pyramid scheme?

I don't fear it much nor does it excite me. The only thing I fear about it is how much retirement is based on it. My 401k has gone down a decent amount over the last year. I think the whole thing is a gamble that may pay off in the long run, but is risky for the short one. One of the biggest drawbacks of it is while it can be used to generate wealth it benefits those who are already wealthy. They can may their money grow at a fairly good pace. Everyone else either cannot risk it or has to watch their wealth grow very slowly and hope they are in a condition to enjoy it at the end.
