You know why they call the crash of '29 The Great Depression and they call the crash of '08 the Great Recession? Because the top ten percent has actually profited from the crash of '08. In '29, many at the top of the investment class were ruined along with everybody else. Not this time. If this one did affect the top ten percenters, it would be a "Depression" too.
