The fact is, society at large
doesn't create the bubble economies that erode its living. It tolerates them!
The engineers of the bubble are those who have lived for
centuries from the processes of looting society. This
process invariably creates financial bubbles.
Bubbles are created when financial resources are poured
into non-productive processes where they do not generate
any kind of real wealth, but rather generate inflated
claims against the actual wealth producing economy.
Scrupulous investors gain large profits by this process
of creating and cultivating the illusion that wealth is
being generated in the financial markets. In real terms
these so-called investors siphon off as profit (or steal)
whatever wealth is poured into the system by their fellow
investors. The market is not enriched by this process,
nor is society enriched by it, but some of the thieves
are greatly enriched by their cleverness in stealing. But, who must ultimately pay the bill?
