    Stocks in theory are a good investment.
    The problem is that we've left theory many years ago.

    Back in the post-Depression society stocks gave fat dividends (which you can only give out when your company has fat profits).
       Then came the 90's, and everyone chased stock prices rather than dividends, which is the ponzi scheme that you describe.
