In light of the recent revelation that “the average pay of Goldman Sachs employees [including] secretaries” is $521,000, I think it’s appropriate to ask why the hell do bankers make so much, while others make so little?
Wall Street banks are paying out a record $21.5bn in bonuses for 2005, according to New York State figures. That dwarfs 2004’s $18.6bn and tops the previous record of $19.5bn in 2000. The average bonus in 2005 was $125,500 – some $25,000 more than in 2000
Deutsche Bank last week became the latest to disclose to its staff the bonus cheques they will soon be taking home. Some top executives will receive bonuses 75 per cent higher than last year.
You have to be wondering WHY? What on earth do bankers do with their TIME that merits this kind of compensation when others are lucky to get minimum wage?
The bankers who manufactured this grotesque system KNOW that the only way they can make themselves filthy rich is off the backs of others.
Think about it; a banker has only 24 hours in his day–JUST LIKE every other human being. But, somehow a banker’s hour is worth millions, while the average laborer’s hour is worth 7 bucks. WHY?
That is the million dollar question. And the answer is simple – lies.
Bankers convince people that INTEREST represents “the time value of money.”
But you know and I know that money has no TIME, neither does it WORK – only people do.
I challenge anyone to bury a dollar, come back in a week and see if it’s not still a dollar!
So, HOW do they make their money ‘work?’
By gaining control of the MONEY SUPPLY through stealth and corruption and convincing people that money has a TIME value, central bankers use fractional reserve lending at interest to effortlessly arrogate to themselves the VALUE of millions of hours of other people’s time.
Those who exchange their labor for a banker’s funny money at interest are literally left with only a fraction of the benefit of their TIME! (i.e., the only thing of value most people have!)
Voila! The value of a central banker’s hour is now worth millions of hours OF OTHER PEOPLE’S TIME!!!
Maybe it’s time that Americans ask themselves how much their TIME is worth?
Maybe it’s time to realize that these grotesque imbalances in society DO NOT happen by chance.
Among men, some will be able to see clearly what others must struggle to understand.
If you see clearly, then please, help someone else understand because we can only change this together, by seeing past the lies.
