    Labor works better since its the ultimate source of all value. Butin the here and now, oddly enough, I find myself agreeing (almost) with Ima today. Sadly since our cash is based on the abstract concept of debt (which in itself is an improvement on commodity based curency) your dollar spent today will buy less tomorrow.

    A good allegory for the US economy. If the lead ballon is falling borrow more money to get it aloft again. Just like the debt ceiling that we are facing. A big problem and an incompetent congress to fix it. Turn the rascals out.

    But credit is still king. For the moment anyway. I prefer cash myself. No credit cards.

    Only werewolves, not vampires. A mistake made in the movies.

    Absolutely no understanding of modern consumer economics or the basis of value. Worse, Stephanie didn’t even bother to weigh in with the famous ‘finance capitalism’ nonsense of Marx, the bankrupt notion that all finance is fraud and the deliberate removal of labor from the system of profit. It’s pretty bad when I understand what Stephanie is trying to say when she herself, rather obviously, does not. Pathetic. Are we finished here?

    They increase the level of consumption with infusions of credit, basing the consumer economy on debt. Of course this creates bubbles and instability, which grow progressively worse.
