The proletarian investor is someone who has understood that in today’s global economy the only way to take the means of productions off the hands of few rich and selfish capitalists, is to invest on the capital markets globally and, by the great numbers, make the few rich irrilevant.
As Marx said, today thanks to the global financial markets, we have the way to own the “means of productions” we can own part of the company where we work and punish them by selling teir stock if they misbehave. We can own the company which is selling us goods, and dump it if it stops doing goods we like.
Today consumers and voters (the modern proletarians) are lead by sophisticated marketing techiques, which basically are are the modern way of lying. The are so advanced and sophisticated that it is very hard to dectect a politician who is lying or a product which is not good before trying it. And they are so sophisticated that two different voters will vote for different candidates both of them believing that they are choosing the person who will help them better. With two canditas lying what really matters is who has more money to lye better. The money comes from companies and by owning them we can even influence a better political process.
Of course it is important to chose the right investments, to support the right company and to increase the wealth of the proletarian investors to make him more powerful and able to give his or her contribute to the decision which really do matter to day. Global decision based on numbers.
More than that, the markets are not racist and sexist. Actually women, living longer than man and usually receiving their heritage, have on average more investment power than men.
So let’s get down on our computer and decide together how to invest our money thus making Democracy stronger and the proletarians less poor.
