    60.6% of all financial securities are owned by the wealthiest top 1%, who also own 38.2% of all corporate stock and 62.4% of all business equity.

    Securities are a game for the rich.  Even if Grandma happens to have a couple shares of IBM.

    •  I was simply addressing what you said. (0+ / 0-)

      Grandma does own stock. Whether she should, or who else owns stock or at what proportions is a whole series of diaries.

      You made a statement of fact. Your "fact" was incorrect.

      Have a good day.
