Cartoon: Credit Expressed As a Plant

26 October 2008

This cartoon expresses the current credit situation:

We all know that money doesn't grow on trees. The illusion is created by the US 'Federal' Reserve and Corporate 'Bailouts', printing/borrowing more 'paper' in exchange for government bonds that don't really exist. This only exacerbates the problem in the long run, creating more debt.

(as a side note I recently watched the Zeitgeist Addendum, free on Google Video, for those that want to learn more about how our money system works on a cloudy Sunday afternoon worth checking out - but be warned: it's 2 hours long!)
