Just don't understand it

Our economy just seems to keep on growing even if recessions and pandemics keep on hitting us. I am not complaining, but... I do wonder how this is possible. I suppose we are fortunate, even though the benefits are unevenly distributed.

Money printing by the feds and a real estate bubbles that won't burst. The worlds economies look like a Ponzi scheme that's doesn't collapse, but if it does the rich will get a bailout. The rich have gotten richer during COVID-19, by the Billions.

... the economy that grows is somewhat decoupled from wage-labor. Imagine Tetris, and the guy who invented it---I don't know if he ended up with a patent, copyright, etc. but for at least a few years, let's presume he ended up generating millions of dollars for himself and others.

Kind of hate to be the one to break the news, but right now the "markets" are in their final throes which precipitate a gigantic crash.

About all the anyone is doing is borrowing money from the government at zero interest rate then buying stocks in their own companies, which is leading to somewhere else too weird to get into here.

Asset inflation

It’s not real growth. The real signs of economic growth are how many new kilometres of highway or bridges have been built, new warehouses and factories opened and how many more people are working in jobs that pay more than minimum wage. Our economy is now almost completely dependant on the fees financial services and asset management intermediaries receive
