Soon the stocks are going to be forbidden from going down, when a stock price goes down, the investors will be told to wait however long necessary to find the new investors to support the prices. There will be days that the stocks won't be traded at all and it will be normal, people will not be concerned or panic.
They will embrace the trading holidays, even if they last a few weeks to months. Eventually, the govt debt will be also replaced with a gigantic stock and all Treasury bonds will be retired. The govt stock will replace the money, you will be able to buy and sell an entire govt with its stock.
We will come in contact with the aliens in 2012, they will come to trade in our exchanges their own countries. NYSE will not be global, but universal. Soon, we will find ourselves capitalizing on the entire solar system. We will never have to work again, the aliens will share with us their loot from other solar systems. This will allow us to retire all world population in peace and live happy once again.
