Taken from someone.

The market is a mechanism for allocating capital and, of course, making us all rich. What it most decidedly isn't is a forum for venting civic sentiment. To equate buying stock with patriotism or selling stock with a lack of patriotism is balderdash, the equivalent of praising or damning a thermometer for the temperature it records.
