The New York Stock Exchange

The capitalization of the Nasdaq was estimated at $5 trillion on March 10,
2000 when it reached an all time high of 5048, so the 76% loss in value
since then represents a $3.8 trillion loss to American "investor".

The capitalization of New York Stock Exchange on January 14, 2000 was
estimated at more than $10 trillion when the Dow Jones Industrial Average
reached an all time high of 11,722, so the 34% loss in value since then
represents another $3.4 trillion loss to American "investors".

This $7.2 trillion loss seems to be getting no coverage at all in the "news
media", even though it completely wiped out any remnant of American
"personal saving", which had already gone in the red by $8.5 billion in
2000, at which time the US became the only industrialized nation in the
world with a negative personal saving rate.

Subtracting this $7.2 trillion loss from the negative personal saving of
2000 gives us a negative $7,208.5 trillion in personal saving.
