In mischief

I see that Kevin Drum is wondering about the need to privatize Social Security. A little mischief popped into my head.
If the dollar weakens as a result of the growing oil supply problem then the foreign folks investing in the US economy may well pull out to invest elsewhere. In that case stock prices will fall, hurting severely those who support "You-Know-Who." However if the great American public could be pursuaded to purchase those same stocks as part of a retirement plan then stock prices would stay up (plus there would be all those luverly commissions) and so the friends would stay wealthy. Nah! Surely Not!
