the global money supply was doubled from 2002 to 2007. some may have been printed/created out of thin air by bankers, but alot was from the massive pumping up of emerging markets. with the rapid creation of all this new wealth in such a short period of time, all this new money just diluted all the money in current circulation and peoples wealth prior to this great pumping. so it appears that with economic growth, unless your the one making the money, the economic growth just dilutes everyones else's wealth making all this stuff we do just a waste of time. ECONOMIC GROWTH JUST DEVALUES YOUR WEALTH ....HAhahahaahHA. thats why wealth is being destroyed now. ps.. how loving of the members of the counsel on foreign relations pumping up all the countries they ve been destabilizing and robbing for god knows how long to prevent global melt down in 2001.
