In the title for this post is the first comment for this WSJ post:

Stocks rose, prompting the Dow Jones Industrial Average to close above 11000 for the first time since September 2008, with Caterpillar, Alcoa and Chevron in the lead.

The Dow climbed 8.62 points, or 0.08%, to 11005.97, its highest close since Sept. 26, 2008. Caterpillar was the measure's best performer, up $1.46, or 2.2%, to 66.73, after Baird upgraded its investment rating on the industrial giant's stock to "outperform" from "neutral." The firm cited higher machinery production rates and an expected increase in global mining capital spending.

If this is socialism, capitalism seems to be enjoying it.
