Just the opposite - “the broken window” parable, you have to pay for war and we have no money.

“um.. war is usually good for the markets.”

I didn’t state otherwise.

A correction simply gets the ‘fluff’ out of the market; the excesses so to speak, before pushing higher once again.

I indicated the market was severly overbought and overdue for a correction, not poised for a bear market - big difference.

Be my guest. Go long Nikkei futures when the Tokyo air raid sirens sound. . I'll take the counter trade.

Even if war isn’t really good for the economy, huge fuel and maintenance spending is going on to move the good stuff around in a really heavy way now. Might as well use it.
