Yes, if you take the 'market' as an entity it has its ebbs and flows; its mad run-ups and manic declines. But, if you concentrate on finding individual stocks with individual situations and assess them based on their fundamentals, prospects and history, you can and will, make money while the market-as-a-whole languishes — and, yes it is harder to achieve this as the economy slows down, but it can be done with enough luck and insight — given a reasonable amount of time, unless of course "it's different this time."

Luck and a reasonable amount of time can make winners of us all. It is certainly not different this time, it never is, that is my point.
