While millions are out of work with scant prospects for new jobs, the governments are spending trillions to buy up stocks and buoy the stock market. Why give the tax payer money to the relatively wealthier equity investors? Upon reflection it seems like another example of the rich getting preferential treatment at the expensive of the relatively poor. Yes a total stock market crash will hurt the poor even more but if you spend time considering this it seems unfairly helping the wealthy stock holders. Those with pensions are also more well off than average. Why not let some of the shock and downturn go to the wealthy? Hmmm
