If this happens, we just need to come up with an alternative economy. Such as one based on bartering.
I personally think that right now, with as much corruption there is in our economy right now, wouldn't it make much more sense to just......walk
away? And start an underground economy, not based on money, but on a bartering system?
How long do you put up with an economy that isn't working before you walk away?
Here is an analogy. Ever been in a relationship with a corrupt or immoral person? You can beat your head against the wall for years trying to explain,
fix, and complain about their actions....but the bottom line is, no matter how hard you try, you cannot make an immoral person behave in a moral way.
And staying in the relationship with someone who does not "play by the rules" (when you do) only wears you down, makes you sick, makes you
miserable. There comes a day when you just say "Screw it....I'm not playing anymore." And you walk away.
We, the American people, generally play by the rules. We pay our taxes, we our money in banks, we pay our bills. But we're playing with corrupt
people. Hhe harder we work for our money, it seems like there are corrupt individuals who want to take our money away....they slam us with fees, they
manipulate the stock market, we lose our 401, we lose the value of our homes.
Well, maybe we should all just say "Screw it...we're not playing in this economy anymore." Because we're playing with corrupt people. There are a
lot of corrupt people in charge of our money. (Why else would the Fed resist a routine audit if they weren't corrupt?? Because they don't want the
people finding out what's really happening with our money....where it's going...what's really happening.)
We've been complaining about this for decades. We've elected tons of politicians who have promised to change the way the economy works. Nothing has
changed. Nothing will change. Banks are stronger, the economy is close to collapsing. Why sit around and wait for a "new fix" proposed by the same
old corrupt people? Why not.....walk away, and start our own economy?
Why continue to work our butts off for something (money) that is decreasing in value every year? It makes no sense. Until we can get rid of the
corruption in the banks, let's walk away from the banks. Let's all barter.
I have already decided to walk away from my home, because the housing crisis has basically made it worthless, and I refuse to pay hundreds and
thousands of dollars of my own hard earned money into a house that is worth half of what it was when I bought it.
Maybe I will just walk away from the real world, and figure out a way to barter my skills, instead.
