NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- For all its faults, Wall Street has honesty you can't find anywhere else. It's what I love about the markets and why I believe the free market works so well to raise the standard of living for all those that embrace it or are surrounded by it.There is simply no better pricing mechanism than today's exchanges, and in the age of social media and crowd sourcing we can easily forget that the New York Stock Exchange was the original crowd-funding portal and later Nasdaq joined in long before people even dreamed of searching Google (GOOG - Get Report) for ways to raise capital for various endeavors.
I Love Google, but Emotion Has No Place in Your Portfolio
