Bubble of hot air
balloon to pin-burst
A hypnotic article, to profit from huge inflation and manufacture even more money, really teaches how to build castles in the air.
Positioning close to new money creation and increased spending during inflation spiking, is precisely the kind of hyper-consumerism that has led us to the sorry state of human-aggravated degradation of Earth for our species survival, simply because it assumes unlimited resources for exploitation, and countless more greater fools to steal from.
Supposed safe havens for wealth: I visualise corpses crushed, rib cages caved in to support stacks of gold stocks, the elemental metal itself the durable carcasses from stars long gone supernova. I also see real estate wrecked into ruin, slid into the oceans, overgrown by nature all too soon, the supposed basis of intergenerational wealth forever (at most a century or less).
Taking on more good debt and patting oneself on the back for more wealth returned from investing this way, does come across as drinking blood from one's small cuts in hopes that one's liver will step up cell production for an even bloodier body.
And increasing cash flow velocity this way to feel richer, sounds like the rush of arterial haemorrhage, as you sacrifice a long, essential living, for that heightened eroticism of a death throe.
