Banks and the economy
People are afraid of "the economy".
But there is no reason for that. There will always be an economy - as long as there are people who want to live. You'll just have to find new ways to deal with the day-to-day routine of trading goods and services.
What might fail, however, is the monetary system... and if it does it will be because the credit system went all haywire. Whenever a currency fails it is because of epic mismanagment at the political level. Say for intance if they at some point thought that the finance markets was going to manage themselves and therefore need no rules and regulations. Free market, yes? There are no words for how idiotic that idea is. WTF is a financial market operator anyway, if not somebody who's found a way to tap into the system and extract monetary profits with little or no actual work? It doesn't take an Einsteinian brain to figure out that f you make life simpler for the parasites, there will be more parasites. Ever heard of evolution?
Just get your calculator out and see how it is impossible to get rich from working. The year only have 8,760 hours. You'd have to work all of those, all around the clock, all the time, for only just above 100 dollars an hour to make a million in a year. But... there are people in the banking "industry" who extract 15-20 million a year in bonuses? Swell. It shows that the system works! Praise the Lord! Spend money. Buy stuff. Work harder. Bust your ass! And rmember to keep that happy smiling face on at all times, whil you give thanks for this fabulous opportunity to be fucked up the ass without any lubricant.
