Not that a stock market is ‘necessary’. And not to forget that a 30% corporate income tax, as in the US, is at least as good as owning 30% of all taxable enterprises. If govt, want’s a larger share of corporate profits, it can just hike the tax rather than buy the stock.

If it’s due to an attack on a fixed fx currency, like HK, I’d rather float the currency than buy stocks.
