IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ANSWER ANY
OF THESE QUESTIONS HERE'S SOME HELP:
Wealth, real wealth that is, is created following the production
of the things we judge our wealth by, for example property
construction, the manufacture of commodities, the growing and
processing of food etc. In a just society the real wealth that is
produced should be represented by the gross value of the money that
is in circulation. Money is not necessarily a measure of wealth
since its value is determined by many more factors that just a
representation of the value of GDP that it is supposed to represent.
After many years of financial trickery and deceit by the banking
fraternity, money is now overvalued by as much as 900%. Only that proportion of money
that is directly related to GDP can be considered to represent real
We judge our wealth by the things we own, things that other
people can see we own. If we have no home, no car, no
television set nor any other physical manmade artifacts then we are
just naked human beings on a barren landscape, no amount of money in the bank will give
any indication of wealth.
Wealth then is represented by the physical things we appear to
own. So where do all these things come from, who makes them and in
you participate in their production. In other words, did you or have
you ever helped in the production of any real wealth? Well it really
depends on your job or profession now or in the past. Obviously anyone who actually
uses their hands to make things is a producer, these people are on
the frontline of 'real wealth'production. Of course there are those
who design the things that the producers make, so though this group
of people don't actually make anything, without them the producers
would have very little to make. Similarly, every production team
needs to be organized, so company owners (excluding financial
speculation gamblers) and their managers can also be considered as a
necessary part of the production process. The final group that can
be considered as support for the producers are the distribution,
wholesale, retail and advertising media companies without whose help
many products would not be sold. All other jobs and
professions 'leech'to varying extents from the wealth created by the producers in
order to exist and accumulate unjustified wealth.
The methods by which the non-producers of the world acquire a
very large proportion of the wealth created by the producers is by a
process invented by the bankers of the world known as 'fractional
reserve banking'. This system, condoned (strangely) by Governments all over the
world, allows banks to print vast amounts of paper money [checks] and issue plastic money
facilities that exceed the value of the real wealth that exists many
times over. Over time
this has resulted in the cost of all commodities and real estate, the items that we judge our
wealth by, being grossly overpriced. Overpriced to such an extent that
almost everyone, including the producers of the wealth in the first
place, have to borrow substantial amounts of money from
financial institutions (remember they just print what they need to
lend on paper or plastic), over
ever extending periods of time. It's criminal that a house that
takes a small team of builders a few weeks to build would take one
of those same builders, and his wife, 30 years to pay for. And even if you are a non-producer like say a stock broker,
you can still buy that house by borrowing some freshly
printed (highly inflationary) money from the bank. (Credit cards are
much the same as printing money that's not backed by any real
If you are a producer then be advised that you probably receive
less than 5% of the wealth you actually helped create. How else
could all the non-producers who play around with and manipulate the
real wealth in the world by buying and selling stocks, currencies and everything
else played with on the world’s financial markets. These people
produce absolutely nothing and yet they jet around the world, take
chauffeur driven limousines from airports to their luxury penthouses and enjoy
lifestyles far in excess of the people who produced the wealth they
all play around with.
ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING YOU SEE AROUND YOU THAT WAS PUT THERE BY
MAN* WAS PRODUCED BY THE PRODUCERS,
NOT BY ANYONE ELSE. IF THERE WERE NO PRODUCERS IN THIS WORLD THEN
THERE WOULD BE JUST A FEW NAKED HUMAN BEINGS MILLING AROUND IN THE
FORESTS OF THE WORLD.
LOOKED AT IN THESE SIMPLISTIC TERMS THE QUICK ANSWER TO THE
FINANCIAL WOES OF THE WORLD IS ALL TOO OBVIOUS,
REDUCE THE NUMBER OF NON-PRODUCERS.
(In a recent BBC World program an eminent economist said that in the
current climate (this was at the time of the so called 'Credit
Crunch'), the financial institutions (of
the world) need to be thinned down, perhaps by as much as
10%. In my opinion a more realistic percentage would be 90%.
AN ANALYSIS OF THE LABOR STATISTICS FOR THE USA AND THE UK REVEAL
THAT IN FACT APPROXIMATELY 5% OF
THE POPULATION OF THOSE TWO COUNTRIES ARE PRODUCERS. NO DOUBT THESE
STATISTICS ARE SIMILAR IN MOST COUNTRIES. YET DESPITE THE RELATIVELY
SMALL NUMBER OF REAL WEALTH PRODUCERS THERE APPEARS TO BE A GREAT DEAL OF WEALTH AROUND.
JUST IMAGINE HOW
RICH THE WORLD WOULD BE IF JUST HALF THE NON-PRODUCERS BECAME
PRODUCERS. TRY TO IMAGINE HOW MUCH RICHER EVERYONE IN THE WORLD WOULD BE,
WORLD BLIGHTS SUCH AS POVERTY, MALNUTRITION, WAR AND DISEASE ETC.
WOULD BE REDUCED IF NOT ELIMINATED.
* I use the term MAN loosely here since as I have shown a large
proportion of the population cannot be included in the term
Who creates the ‘real wealth’ in the world?
