GUEST,Dáithí BS: Who has all The Money? (60* d) RE: BS: Who has all The Money? 30 Nov 10


No money is "real"in the way that mountains, seas, weather, crops are.

Money is a human construct. So your $100k or whatever only buys anything as long as everybody agrees it will.

You/we only owe huge debts (to whom, I ask again) as long as we all agree we do.
SO... if we all agree nobody owes anybody anything then we can abolish this so-called debt - and start thinking about how best to manage our finite resources ...
Instead - we are so wedded to this imaginary economics that we cancel hospital buildings, cut resources , let people die and starve, and become "wealthy"...because it suits us to do so. It doesn't have any objective reality other than that which we give it. So why not stop?
