Went to WalMart tonight – wore my convexity pig sweatshirt. An employee restocking fruit asked me about it – I told him. He said “Cool – so that’s about the mortgage bust and Wall Street, right?” My jaw about dropped… ‘Yup’.
We then talked awhile – he pretty much had the story down except he was more of a gubbmint was at fault not the banks meme kinda guy … I told him that was what Wall Street wants you to believe, they were all in it together.
But think about this – stock boy at Walmart, in rural flyover, early part of the evening shift.
