Never lose money

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

The government can easily ensure that no one ever loses money in the stock market by doing any of the following 3 things:

1) If someone sells a stock at a loss the government should send them a check to cover the loss

2) It should be illegal to sell a stock for less than it was purchased for

3) The government should control prices of stocks and thus can set them to be higher but never lower
