Bridge To Nowhere
What has occurred over the last 20 months is the failed attempt at building a bridge between waves. What Benny and the Jets has failed to realize in his study of the Great Depression is that the bridges would have to go up and have infinite power to sustain the system. The only way Benny could be successful is if the bridges are going up at the rate that is exponential to meet the demand of the underlying equation being used in the system.
Benny and the Jets would have to be God or God-like or maybe even have more power than God to sustain the system. They can definitely can and do have influence and effect the rate of decline but the equation always wins in the end.
The underlying equation is still demanding additional credit without an increase in production, nor do humans have the ability to supply the equation exponential growth long-term, unless your idea of long-term is 60-80 years.
