The most important thing about finance? It’s a business, isn’t it? It’s a job, isn’t it? And it’s not something we can’t control. Of course, there are plenty of people who are highly successful in the world of finance and have a lot of money. The truth is that we don’t have control over how our money is spent, the people we hire, or the jobs we do.
While many of us will always have a certain amount of wealth, it is impossible to know how much of it we really control. It’s easy to say it’s because of inheritance and inherited wealth, but you have to look at it in the context of how wealth is created and how people work together to create it. To make money in finance you need to negotiate with people who have a lot of money.
Like stockbrokers and lawyers, banks and investment companies are people who have huge amounts of money. And while they may not always have a lot of money to negotiate, they are always willing to negotiate. Their goal is to get you to give them what they want. In some cases they have good news, in others they have bad news. In some cases they are desperate for investment money, in others they are desperate for you to buy them a beer or some other kind of freebie.
Most of this is a result of the financial crisis that has lasted so long that it has become a sort of norm. And in the past decade, banks have become so wealthy that they can no longer negotiate directly with people, they have to resort to shady tactics like selling you shares in companies that they actually own. It is now so commonplace to hear about a banker offering to buy your stock before you do you the favor of signing something.
As of late, it seems like everyone can now get their hands on a freebie. The problem is that the people who are offering these freebies are usually a few people who have taken the time to set up an account with a bank. Then, in a matter of hours, your stock is liquidated at a ridiculously high price. It’s not just us that is starting to lose our money. As the saying goes, “A plague on both your houses.
This isn’t as bad as it sounds, at least not in its own right. In fact, it is probably even better than that. Just because you are buying something, doesn’t mean that you’re really doing anything. But even so, buying something and waiting for someone else to do the same, you are still waiting for the other person to do the same.
The financial industry has a long and sordid history of this. In the early 60s, the financial industry was so broken that the Fed tried to create a black market where stocks could be bought and sold for a fraction of their actual value. It was a failure, the industry was destroyed, and the stock market collapsed. The industry itself has never recovered.
So we are stuck in a financial “time loop.” We’re in a time loop because we’re in a time loop because we’re in a time loop. It’s like when you’re in a time loop and you’re waiting for someone to get sick and then they do, and you’re waiting for them to get sick and then they do. There is no reason for the other person to do the same.
So it is that the only way to escape this loop is to buy into the market and the economy back. The market is a giant time loop that we get stuck in because it has made the market in which we are stuck impossible to exit. Even if we could exit, its impossible to exit because the only way to exit what is basically a giant time loop is to buy into the market back again. The only way to do this is to buy into the market back again.
This is the same as the time loop that happens if you get caught stealing from the market back again. The only way you escape the loop you buy back into the market.
