Everyone - especially the Democrats - talks about how well the economy is doing. No one ever mentions how much the Internet and the rise of the home computer has contributed to that growth. If you are reading this, you've spent a decent amount of money to be able to do so. Many people telecommunicate for a living. The Internet is a growth industry without a ceiling. No politician ever mentions that fact. The factory on the corner is now replaced by a keyboard on a desk. As Dustin Hoffman heard the word "plastics" in the movie The Graduate - flash forward to 2000 and replace that with "computers."

Nice going mr or ms inyourface (are you sure it is your face? LOL LOL LOL)
.. nice LIBERAL Leftist language too.

========================

Although most people want to forget it but a few of us still
remember. The events that happened in early 1998-1999 involved
many vulture capitalists (oooops! Venture Capitalists) on Sand Hills
Road in Silicon Valley, the stock brokerage firms in New York and LA.
VCs all over the US and the world..(New York, Lost Angeles, Japan &
Europe) poured investors' money into the so-called dot.com ventures ..
those investments were legal so ... no one got put in jail... and
yep, 75% of those executives in SF. Bay Area were Clintons' biggest backers in 1992 & 1996 elections. (and Gore's in 2000)

Trillions (est. $140 trillions) of market values were lost due to the
dot.com's crash.

This page examines the conflicts of interest and the close links
between market analysts and bankers. These resulted in dishonest
positive reports which brought in business for banks but fueled the
technology bubble and defrauded investors who lost trillions of
dollars. It was at the heart of the 21st century fraud scandals.

The Dotcom and Technology Bubbles Market Analysts and Fraud

Who paid the price and how much?
The investing public

"The bubble burst in 2000 and over the next 2 years the market in technology and DotCom shares disintegrated. In the process the public, whose money was being used, whose interests the financial institutions were committed to serve, and who should have benefited from the financial proceeds of the technological advances were systematically deceived and ripped off. Dreams were shattered and many were bankrupted. The fraud is estimated to have cost investors
trillions of dollars."
