By the end of the 40-hour work week, we’re over-worked and exhausted. We barely have any time to ourselves, save the meager few hours in the evenings. Most of us lose our identities in the process, forgetting our hobbies, interests, and simple pleasures in life. We’re in such a rush to fit everything into our schedules, working towards the next big purchase, that we don’t stop to enjoy our lives. And yet we keep working long hours, never thinking to question it. Meanwhile, corporations get richer and debt skyrockets.
Why do we allow this to happen?
Inflation is what happens when the value of a dollar is raised. When the US government needs money to wage whatever kind of war, they ask the Federal Reserve for a loan. From here, the Fed buys bonds (essentially, IOU’s) from the government in whatever amount the government requested. The government then prints out treasury bonds, while the Fed prints money. The two trade, and the government deposits this money into a different bank, which charges fees and interest. And there you have it. The creation of money out of nothing.
