Why is it that so many people are in so much debt at the same time? Does it seem strange to you that no matter how hard one works, and in spite of all the advances in society, most hard working people cannot escape the treadmill of perpetual debt? Why are so many families losing their homes to foreclosure? Why are so many households dependent upon credit cards to supplement their income? Why does it take TWO working spouses to maintain a middle class lifestyle when it used to take just one? Why are so many young people still living at home with their parents? Why do prices always creep up? Why, in spite of continued economic “growth”, are living standards actually falling?
You know in your gut that something isn’t right in this world. But you don’t have the “Economics education” to figure it out. It all seems too complicated for you to put your finger on, so you just keep slaving away to pay interest and taxes as your dollar buys less and less. Just keep working like a dog and leave the matter to the “experts” and politicians to handle.
But it’s all very simple really. So, how exactly did we all become debt/tax/inflation slaves? ‘BANCAROTTA!’ breaks it down for you in the form of a very simple to understand allegorical short story set in the medieval Kingdoms of Pizza & Pasta and Beer & Strudel. You will truly be amazed at how quick and easy it really is to understand the world we live in today.
“Bravo! This entertaining and very funny illustrated allegorical tale taught me more about money, banking, politics and history than 4 years of business school and 10 years of following the business reports. A must read for everyone on this planet that lives under the criminal system of debt-based central banking.”
