It used to be that corporations made their money the old fashioned way-they would earn it. Now is seems that financial and accounting engineering are the only way that corporations can proclaim an improving bottom line.
For the past several years the financial sector, notably the banks, would enhance their earnings by making the determination that reserves needed to be less. After all, the Great American Recovery was underway and there would no longer be home foreclosures, car repos or credit card delinquencies.
After a decline of 1500 points in 3 weeks Wall Street is starting to worry. Certainly not about the market, the economy or the world at large. No, Wall Street is worried that Mom and Pop, who were just starting to dip a toe in the water, may have second thoughts.
