Equity markets track with inflation. Your 401k may be higher, but you can't buy more with it as the cost of goods will rise in reaction over time.

Nothing motivates like fear of starvation, poverty, or general lack of ability to take care of one's self or loved ones.
You will find no real data to show that govt helps more than it hurts "upward mobility"
