FILE - In this Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011, file photo, people walk in front of the New York Stock Exchange, in New York. The Dow reaches its highest record ever on Tuesday, March 5, 2013. Yet the market's run-up feels worlds away from the lives of many Americans. Wages have only recently started to recover after months of declines that stretched family budgets thin. Unemployment is stuck near 8 percent, high enough that most Americans still know people who are out of work. Signs of a housing recovery have boosted stocks, yet millions of people face foreclosure.
