With the news of the United States possibly going into default on its stupidly humongous irresponsible national debt August 2nd in the media constantly some numbers might put things into perspective. Worldometers.info has real-time world stats that cover a wide range but most noticeably the U.S. debt.
Looking at the counters you see one thing, it doesn’t stop. Politicians and so-called economics experts think they know how to manhandle the beast after they let it get out of hand by sleight of hand and trickery. Just look at the numbers though, they don’t stop. It’s a constant monster that continues to grow especially in a system that constantly strives for growth even though it’s unsustainable.
Nature doesn’t work that way. Nothing does. That’s why nature strives for a balance because everything is connected to and affects everything else. Economic experts would do well to follow this example otherwise at some point it will all crumble. Instead of finding that balance and working within it wall street, banks, corporations, financial systems think that a rise and crash is manageable forever even though the first lesson in economics shows it’s not.
How easily they forget, it’s called a Law of Diminishing Returns for a reason.
