With the way the rules were changed, Rape, Murder, Theft and Fraud have been made legal, for those with extreme wealth.
National private debt is also absurd, even more absurd than public debt. It is hard to imagine how much of the derivatives market is nothing but debt backing debt backing debt, so that the bankers can continuously get a slice of everyone's pie.
Pension funds and retirement funds, and savings under 500K could be saved. Start a new currency that is only for the US, not the world currency, and honor individuals who put the money they earned into the system.
Reset the economy, delete the debt.
In Sanskrit, Hebrew, Aramaic, ‘debt,’ ‘guilt,’ and ‘sin’ are actually the same word. Much of the language of the great religious movements – reckoning, redemption, karmic accounting and the like – are drawn from the language of ancient finance. But that language is always found wanting and inadequate and twisted around into something completely different. It’s as if the great prophets and religious teachers had no choice but to start with that kind of language because it’s the language that existed at the time, but they only adopted it so as to turn it into its opposite: as a way of saying debts are not sacred, but forgiveness of debt, or the ability to wipe out debt, or to realize that debts aren’t real – these are the acts that are truly sacred.
I'm not going to personally dig back into it all today for updated numbers, but if I'm not mistaken the Federal Reserve Bank most directly responsible for publishing the figures that matter here is the St Louis one in terms of searching. They track, as a routine matter, all money. I mean..*ALL* money. Paper, coin and digital bit. Then they break it down in every way you could imagine. There are even break downs for coin denominations currently out, and further broken way down from there for where and in what form they take. It's really silly for the efforts taken.
