Economy Money Flows
If this doesn't scare you, maybe you should check your pulse!
Welcome to SystemsWiki’s Musings exploring how deeper understanding relationships and their implications can enable more effective action.
There are an endless array of perceptions about the economy, most of which are completely unfounded. The difficulty with these unfounded perceptions is that there are those in positions to create socio-economic policy, and they support the creation of those policies based on their unfounded perceptions. The typical result of flawed socio-economic policy implementation is that the operating environment is degraded for all. This particular musing presents the economic sector model which I believe should raise a number of questions. One specific one is raised at the end of the presentation.
If you consider the current National Debt, somewhere around $29 Trillion Dollars, less the cumulative trade deficit for the Foreign Sector, the remainder in the private sector should promote a very healthy economy. The Private Debt is about twice that amount. And since the money isn't in the economy might one sensibly ask where is it? It's a question I don't seem to find anyone asking. I wonder why that might be?
The following video provides a couple of thoughts as to where it might be.
What might you think is the inevitable conclusion of this set of relationships?
