Downturned economies like the one we have right now are really where the rich get richer. At times like this, middle-class and poor people are desperate to survive and will end up selling their assets for pennies on the dollar,(or working for pennies on the dollar). There's no doubt in my mind that the current financial crisis was set in place on purpose and was planned. All the rich have to do is sit around and wait while the economy gets worse and worse, then when it's at the definitive bottom they snatch everything up for fire-sale prices, and then 5 years later sell it back to the people they bought it from for x2-x3 as much.
Rinse and Repeat. The gap gets ever wider.
I'll tell you what, in the accounting classes I've taken, the system they use to track and document cash flow is such an illogical mind-fuck the only logical reason I've seen to use it is to hide money and make income look confusing to the average person.
