Dawn J. Bennett warns investors that even a Machiavellian U.S. Government can’t hide the financial truth! Dawn tells how there is very little agreement in the U.S. government today about what is right and wrong. In the current Machiavellian system what really matters are the ends, not the means. She says we are lost because we have forgotten the values and principles of our Founding Fathers, namely, a free people cannot survive under a guiding Constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.
Dawn feels that today’s U.S. government has lost sight of its meaning. Samuel Adams once said, “Neither the wisest Constitution nor the wisest laws will secure liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He, therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man.” Dawn J Bennet sees that in the last 10 years the government has lost citizen trust, and wonders how it will ever regain it. She says the media has led government officials into believing that the American people think they are doing a good job, and never lost trust in them. This media, or propaganda, about the state of the U.S. economy is one of the greatest propaganda coups of our time.
Dawn says that Bernanke, now Yellen’s experiment in market central planning in which a bank’s balance sheet is far more important than fundamentals is one of the greatest investing perversions to ever emerge in U.S. markets. The stock returns over the last five years have been duplicitous, disproportionately skewed to the upside. Giving the sense that we are in a recovery, but this isn’t true. The Dow Jones Industrial had a huge decline during the week of July 21, 2014. Then Amazon reported their worst earnings in years, causing their stock to tumble. On top of all that Caterpillar’s earnings, the bellwether industrial company, were down again for the 19th consecutive month.
Despite all the claims of a financial recovery, we are really still in a financial crisis. Dawn J Bennett wants American investors to not be easily manipulated into investment victims. It is important to investors that they look at reality and figure out who can be trusted.
