The Entire economic system is based on debt and more debt. All of this “Growth” is fueled by people unable to keep their heads above water with the wages they earn going into debt to fuel consumption. As this debt grows they have to borrow more money to pay back that debt.
The Banking system through what is called “Financial Innovation” is now investing in this debt because it will garner a “return”. They have their greedy little paws in there using the debt of the masses to gain control of all real assets while ensuring the Governments will bail them out when their own shenanigans might risk economic collapse.
Those “Hedge Fund managers” making all of those millions produce NOTHING. A Farmer produces more and all that Hedge Fund Manager does is exist off that Farmers labor, extracting wealth from it even as that farmer goes into debt to produce something real.
The banking system, the Investor class and the entire rotten thing we call capitalism is one where those with all of the money and wealth, those claimed as “self made” and “wealth creators” are in fact parasites.
