The past ten years in the stock market have been a struggle.
Inflation has destroyed what you thought you had. Or think you have.
The dollar is worth a warm bucket of spit.
And of course, Americans' #1 asset, housing, has collapsed. Which wouldn't have been so bad, had everyone not lost their minds and HELOC'd their gains away.
There's no question that the rich got richer under Bush/Cheney - even though the last two years will have proven to be brutal I think as real estate and credit melted down.
So how's it lookin' HP'ers?
And are you worried or optimistic about the next 10 years?

Add it all up - is your net worth (assets minus liabilities) more or less than it was ten years ago?
