I don't believe we should blame the market for causing a person(s) to stop buying.
That is simply a decision that a person makes on his/her own and they alone are responsible for making they're own decisions.
Unfortunately we seem to be living in a society that increasingly can't seem to take responsibility for themselves.
More often than not they go around thinking they need to blame somebody or something else every time things don't go the way they would have it go.
The market has no consciousness. It can't play us but on the other hand we can play it.
