Line listening to the great kiss EPA radio San Francisco David. Your turn hurry long-term no talk Hey you know hearing yesterday, that the was it apple reached a trillion, dollars I'm just, wondering the, expression hyperinflation, wheelbarrows full of money to get a. Loaf of bread. It really seems like the sky's the limit for some of these, stocks but, it's, not reaching, down to. The bottom What do you mean it's not reaching down. To the, bottom well I a couple of, years ago people were demanding a fifteen, dollars an hour minimum wage so now of the valuation of some of these stocks have just taken off and it. The average person, is still waiting for that fifteen dollars an hour to. Kick, in you, know if if the prices of. Goods whether it's healthcare or. Refrigerator or Christ a hamburger was twelve bucks three years ago down here near the financial.

Trillion, dollars for that company those are statistical facts based on the earnings power and the potential that investors see at the company I'm asking you how you are connecting that. To what states or the federal government established as the minimum wage what is the connection between that well there might be called what's called the prevailing wage in a given area Is is. The average person going to be able to keep up with what the inflation rate. Of stocks is going? To or on the other hand if there is no correlation then why should we Klay why should we listen to the Trump bites when they claim that it's a booming economy. When the average person is not gaining and only the stock market is gaining if there's no correlation and that, means that there is no reality in in either sense.
