Gee, Elizabeth Warren! Nothing says "taking on Wall Street" like *checks notes* having fundraisers with the vice chairman of NASDAQ!

Ie, “The NASDAQ is up; the NASDAQ is down” etc.
What does it do? What does its vice chairman do? Is it considered “evil” like Jeffrey Dahmer? Why?
Admittedly, I know jack about stocks and economics and so forth, but I don’t think the stock market is some kind of Evil Empire. I’m pretty sure my 501K thing has money in stocks. Someday I’m gonna be able to retire, and I guess then I’ll be glad the NASDAQ existed.

I always thought there were different kinds of evil, some definitely worse than others. You are equating all of it. Reminds me of a high school debate team tactic. What’s up with that?

From the Google –
The Nasdaq Stock Market is an American stock exchange. It is the second-largest stock exchange in the world by market capitalization, behind only the New York Stock Exchange located in the same city.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…

So, my question stands. Are stock markets evil? I think that’s like saying “banks are evil” or “politics is evil” or “media is evil” or “Hollywood is evil.”
Maybe the world would be better if no country anywhere had a stock market; if the market had never been invented. I don’t know. I don’t understand stocks. But I don’t hate a thing for existing, and I don’t automiatically hate the people it employs.

Senator Elizabeth Warren has come calling as recently as April. Kamala Harris, the first-term senator of California, has made repeated visits, starting as early as her third month in office. Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is also no stranger to the big-money donor world of New York; he was here in April — his third such visit in three months.
It will be months before Mr. Biden, Ms. Harris, Ms. Warren or most potential presidential aspirants will barnstorm across the farmlands of Iowa, dig into a low-country boil in South Carolina or field questions at a town-hall meeting in New Hampshire.
But with American presidential races requiring an ever-dizzying amount of money, an early, behind-the-scenes 2020 contest is already taking place: the New York money primary.
Over passed appetizers, intimate dinners and private board room meet-and-greets, a parade of nationally ambitious Democrats have been cycling through the offices and living rooms of the Manhattan money set.
