you walk into a bingo hall and offer to raffle a goat (have you heard this one?) problem is --- you dont own one. You sell 2 times the value of a goat (goats are valuable commodities in bingo halls, perhaps and everyone knows what they are worth). The guy with the winning ticket is payed the value of a goat in cash, and you buy your first goat, Congratulations! How often do you have to do this before you own all the goats?? Compounded interest is unethical and it's about time publications like the +The Economist
and a myriad of academics/politicians debate this openly, honestly. but I am not hopeful, that greed would step aside, and I will go back to reading historical accounts of failed brave attempts -- it's an ages old thing. I am done here. Cheers. Peace.
