The success of the stock market has a huge impact on the financial health of the United States. In the past, it was the case that stock market investors were benefiting from huge financial success for a certain amount of time, followed by a bursting of the bubble in the form of a market crash. When the financial bubble bursts, it leads to extensive financial suffering for people across the United States.
