FTSE100 having its longest sustained month by month rise ever.  Anyone else think that austerity measures are just a convenient tool to make profits at the top end even higher?

Weird innit. Anybody would think that capitalism relied on exploiting the poor.

I don't think they *just* a convenient tool, no.

But they are a convenient tool.

I don't think it's a reflection on the strength of the economy, or the FTSE100 companies.

 

Still, if you still have the shares of a financial institution you worked for a good number of years ago, the rise of the stock market in general brings little cheer. :(

The banks are not passing on (by re-lending) income because they have been told by the Bank of England to significantly increase their reserves.

Having suffered from a poor performing stock market for some considerable time, the rise is most welcome to at least make a profit from 12 years of investing. That said. it could also retreat.
