Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 801 -- Congress Ruins America.

Markets Down When Congress Meets, Up When They Aren't Meeting-

A few years ago, an article was published explaining that when Congress is in session, regardless of the party in power, markets go down. When Congress is not in session, markets rally. Powerful differences emerge between in-session and not-in-session periods, over long eras of time.

Someone took that idea and ran with it in reality:

The Congressional Effect Fund tries to capture most of the stock market's returns while minimizing the inherent political risk. Since its launch in 2008, the Fund has a cumulative (not annualized) return of +1.49%, as compared to the S&P 500 Index, which has lost -18.21% over the same time period. A shareholder who invested with us on the first day the Fund launched has a profit since 2008 (a $10,000 investment would have grown to $10,149) as compared to a loss ($8,179) from investing the same amount in the S&P 500. This constitutes a CEFFX performance difference of +24.09% over the S&P 500.

I am not trying to sell this fund, but this is pretty stark evidence that the existence of Congress is harmful to America.

William F. Buckley once said, "I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University."

You have to wonder. John Hawkins would take it one step further. He would even replace the Democrats in Congress with 254 randomly selected minimum security prisoners.
