First let me make this clear. I don't really care if people break even for a long period of time on their investments. However, I hate to see the broad middle class get completely screwed by an investment industry and governements that are fundamentally dishonest and predatory from what I can tell from the inside of the retail financial industry. It is wrong that the investment industry has gone from producing capital for production and that government has become (more) about skimming off the top, middle and bottom. A lot of people will have to work well past 62 or 65 years old now because of a decade of fraud and theft that blew away the previous two decades of fraud and theft Think of the 1980s and 1990s as the apprenticeship period to what just went down, which unfortunately doesn't seem to be improving and is only standing still hoping nobody notices- sort of like T-Rex before he eats you.

I don't want to use a leveraged etf or etn, I know about SRS.
Is there a short/inverse real estate ETN or ETF that I am just not seeing. Something new maybe?
Thank you for the emails helping me write this better.
