Why do the rich just get richer and richer? Could it be that it has something to do with the fact that we have to rent our entire money supply from the banks that create it?
Did you know that in the UK alone, together we pay the banks £192 million in interest every single day?
1) New Video: Inequality – Why Are the Rich Getting Richer?
We depend on the money created by banks. But because the money is created when people borrow, someone, somewhere, has to pay interest on every pound created. In effect we are renting the money we need to run our economy from the banks.
2) Please share this video – it’s important
Money creation by the banks is certainly not the only reason for the staggering inequality we see in the world today, but it is an important factor that is rarely discussed.
As long as we have to rent the money we use from the banks that create it, we’ll have to keep paying this huge interest bill, and the gap between the richest and the rest of us will keep increasing.
There are ways to create money that don’t depend on us all going into debt to the banks. Ways that would lead to less debt, and stop the gap between the richest and the rest of us getting even bigger.
