An estimated $1.2 QUADrillion in the derivatives market...

Fiat currencies...

Fractional reserve banking...

Compounding interest...

$20 trillion national debt in the US alone...

Still have faith in our economy? That's laughable.

What's laughable is people have been panicking about the debt for years and yet it's still well under control, at barely over a 1:1 ratio with GDP, fat, FAR below previous highs.

What's sad is that so many people don't understand the basics of economic reality.
