Think about the wonderfully 'un-real' world of economics now 'driving' our economy. Thanks to Woodrow Wilson, we appointed a consortium of International bankers to be in charge of our monetary policy. They print 'kaboodles' of money out of 'thin air', totally at their discretion- money that is based upon NO OBJECTIVE standard of valuation ( for every paper 'greenback' the Fed prints, there is NOT a dollar of gold bullion in Ft.Knox to 'back it up' ). The same Bankers who CREATE this 'monopoly money' also get to LEND it out, at interest. To complete the 'symbiotic loop', we have 'government servants' in Washington DC who BORROW 'boat loads' of money (16 trillion and counting) from the Bankers to fund their multitudinous schemes.
