Modern world recognize and use two sciences: mathematic and economy.
Long time ago, Albert Einstein said:
"The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.
" For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction.
Interpretation of Einstein law is very simple:
Unfortunately, one of our two sciences is guilty for the worst crimes ever committed.

In simple terms the new money comes into circulation through the banking system, issued as a debt to the banking system.
This money is created out of thin air and is backed by nothing.
There is a significant difference between a nominal value and printing costs of the money.
Here we are talking about enormous profit, also called seigniorage.
What's worse, with fractional reserve banking like in Euro area, we have the same money in 50 different places at the same time.
In the case of money lending like this one, generated interest on initial deposit becomes unbelievable number.

It's not finished yet: You have to repay public debt, interests, inflation, other hidden taxes, and who knows what else...
Finally, world is full of enemies so you have to fight them before they have a chance to attack you.
It's a war that you're losing for twenty centuries.
What is hidden behind the Central Banks independence and autonomy?
Privately owned corporations and lost of "democratic countries "monetary sovereignties?

Negative Effects Of Credit Card

The magnetic strip was introduced in 1970 and ushered in the information age and the credit card industry boom which has driven this economy now for decades.
Though we don't have a debtor's prison as in the days of Babylonia, nor is usury lawful (though a good argument might be presented that it is from time to time), we do seem to have come full circle.
Remember all those farmers back 3000 years ago who went to prison and could not grow thereby starving there countryman ?
Well, what do you suppose drives our economy ?
It's credit.
And what horrible condition continues to rise in epidemic proportions as a result ?
It's bankruptcy.

Per an article Can You Afford It ?
The national balance on credit cards, auto, and other non-mortgage loans rose to a new record figure in April 2001 at $1.58 trillion.
Delinquent credit card payments (30 days past due) has risen to new high of 5% delinquency.
There is a 17.5% increase in the already staggering number of bankruptcies filed.
The credit card has been the single major pivot in creating a boom in bankruptcies.
Do you suppose it might be possible to have enough consumers declare bankruptcy so that the entire economy might implode upon itself ?
It did with the farmers in early civilizations.
I would say it is very possible when your castle is built of plastic.

Interesting thread, but i feel it's alittle more complicated than what you just tried to explain. Global debt problems have exisisted for a very long time and we'll never get away from it. Do i believe that one day our economy will colapse upon itself...probably. There's not much to do other than try and live day to day, since i'm not one of those "Market Makers". I make up the majority of the population who as a whole make a difference. So when one "Market Maker" boobs up a chunk of us feel it. To bad Millionairs want to be Billionairs and Billionairs want to be Trillionairs and Trillionairs want to rule the world, cause if greed didn't run this planet we would be far more of an advance civilization.
