Dear BrickStreet Folks:

To celebrate the Dow Jones reaching a new high, our cartoonist Nancy Dunn has created another visual commentary for your enjoyment.

The Federal Reserve, even by The Wall Street Journal’s admittance, is most responsible for the previous four year move in the major equity Indices. As the Fed continues to roll money into our monetary system, the normal economic forces like Supply and Demand are not as meaningful. The old days of thinking through economic measures have been off the table since March of 2009, as the Central Banks have taken control of the liquid markets.

So, with a bit of humor, we again poke fun at our friends around the corner from the White House and wait for the other shoe to drop.
