Banks, economy, stock exchange and (of course) crisis.

As money is just a means of exchange between human beings, the economy based on it and the stock exchange are just secondary derivates of it. Originally.

However, with money changing from means to objective, the related mechanisms shifted from secondary to primary, turning into the main engine of modern (post industrial and westernized) society gaining more and more power. The bankers, stock exchange and large multinationals have grown far bigger and more powerful than most national governments and now rule the world.

The concentration of so much power in the hands of bankers, brokers, lobbyists and speculators could of course lead to disaster only. “Of course” because money is meant to make society work (as a whole) while all the previously mentioned elements only have the goal to deviate money from society to their own pockets.

Eventually, this will lead to the collapse of the democratic system.
