Comment dollar = empirical something (Score 1) 732

Engineers can't push 5% real growth year over year, but banks who can print-up money can push 20%+ pseudo-revenue. Make the dollar a literal of something (oil, eavestroughs, carpets, metal, something as long as it's real) and watch banks magical profits turn to nothing. Why be a General Motors engineer where they can't empirically push 6% real growth year over year even working with an army of assembly line robots, yet General Motor's finance arm which received massive bailouts regularly boasts 20%+ pseudo-profits? Think bitcoin, when you have a hyperinflatable fraud-currency as the basis for 'profit' and Wall street can literaly print numbers out of thin air, watch what happens....
