Hi Satti,

If you are referring to the Dow Jones, it bottomed out at 8,400 points in 2009 and is currently sitting above 25,000. So about a 300% increase for that index as well as the S&P 500… I agree 100% the stock market does not capture the economic reality of most people. GDP is actually not a very good indicator for the reality of many people. I’ve written about that in more detail, if you’re interested you can check it out here.

Thanks for the comment.
