Personally I feel a comparison to 1937 may be more appropriate. No charts but just a gut feeling. In 1933 we had just had rug pulled out and were trying for a quick recovery. Now we're a few years into an anemic recovery, maybe we're in good shape. Or, the Fed overreacts combined with many variables and we get hammered again. Anyway the solution after 1937 was pretty ugly.
Now that I've got that negativity out of my system, let's look to the positive...

Ya mean the fact the apple the guy is selling on the street corner is $1.50, not a nickel? Or the fact he's offering you a choice of Fuji or Gala rather than only Red Delicious?

Awe yes a fellow apple aficionado. Perhaps that's where a niche market exists for aspiring street vendors .
