no. the economy is just a game played by the elite. i know this sounds stupid but i would bet anything on it. it's not a conspiracy or anything but a game. what i'm trying to say that the ultra wealthy use the economy like a kid uses a toy. when they want more money or power, they make things occure that cause the market to fluctuate either up or down which in turn causes the average person to spend a lot of money. by doing this, the wealthy , who own big businesses get a greater influx of money, increasing their worth. when they cause a down turn, people hoard their money but they can only do this for a short period. they then have to spend to survive, making themselves poorer and again , the big businesses get greater wealth.
i'm not sure if anyone will understand what i'm trying to say but this is a subject i've studied for quite a while and i know what i know.
