well said.

For those of you ignorant of the basics, i recommend:

Basic Economics: A Citizen's Guide to the Economy
by Thomas Sowell.

I read the first edition in the dot come age circa 2000, alone with other  
books that helped me understand stocks and related financial things. I've  
read Thomas's book 2 more times in the early 2000s.
