Kitkat,

There is a reason its called financial repression. Unfortunately artificially low rates (ZIRP -- that's Zero Interest Rate Policy :) is a stealth tax that politicians don't have to deal with.

Unfortunately I agree with your points and not much one can do about it. Personally I think the lines of other "big picture thoughts" such as cleantech (yes that includes Kandi) is the next productivity wave. But we aren't investing -- and that's the real bummer.

PS: While there's electric transportation -- I like also the concept of fuel cells and utilities.
