    OK, too many posts already.

    I responded to the first few, and didn't read the hundreds in between.

    I have a question. Why do people pose this as if the 1%'ers are the problem? This in my opinion is a very ignorant way to view things.

    People who squander they money will remain at the bottom no matter their income, unless they have a very large inheritance.

    Anyone can become a 1%'er with time, determination, and yes, a little luck.

    Luck runs both ways, and some people keep getting kicked down, but in general... It is the individual that makes their own future.

    Again, for hard of understanding, I never said a pie does not grow, I said at any point in time, there is a finite amount.

    but we are talking about "solutions" for not one slice of the wheel of time but for its constant rotation forward

    Geez, you people can't hold anything still, there either is or is not at any single point in time a finite amount of captured wealth on this planet.

    So which is it?

    For a solution to work with a moving target, you first have to hold a target steady. You still can't even accept that when you hold time still, a finite amount exists.

    So which is it?
    the economy doesn't stand still for one thing. it is constantly flowing in either direction.
    sure you can try and take a snapshot but it is already out of date by the time you try and process it.

    why can't you actually understand what you are saying and listen to why it is wrong? that would be the better question.
    the fact is while you can go here there is X money right there.

    good for you what you leave out is that the fed and put Y money into the system thereby increasing how much is there.
    they can do this at any point in time to maintain the level of money needed to make the system work.

    that is their job and what they do.

    it isn't that hard to understand except for you guys I guess.
