One billion dollars is ten dollars spent, per each one of one hundred million people.

Like so many things they do! All for the single purpose of bankrupting us all/ which they have done; because you let them.

What were some of the effects of the stock market crash of 1929?
The stock market crash of 1929 was not the sole cause of the Great Depression, but it did act to accelerate the global economic collapse of which it was also a symptom. By 1933, nearly half of America’s banks had failed, and unemployment was approaching 15 million people, or 30 percent of the workforce.
The Depression hit hardest those nations that were most deeply indebted to the United States, i.e., Germany and Great Britain. In Germany, unemployment rose sharply beginning in late 1929, and by early 1932 it had reached 6 million workers, or 25 percent of the work force.

The reality of stock market operations is: that this gambling arena works, because people want “free money”. Like all gambling, there is no free money “for the vast majority/ because the game is rigged. Or more correctly, the people who own “the house” can intervene at any time, and change the rules “so to speak”.
In real terms it works like this: in the past, the price was consistently determined by the volume of sales. The more people who were buying any particular stock meant “soon the price would go up”/ because of more demand. So to make money, you really only needed to know the volume, and get in at an appropriate time. Today the stock market is controlled by computers, with deliberate programs to spy on you. As in they know what your selling positions are. What you debt ratios is. When you buy and what; or more distinctly everything they want to know about each investor. The large investor uses that information to identify when they sell or buy.
The reality of stock is very simple: it has almost nothing to do with the actual company/ because valuations have nothing to do with reality. It is the name, or base profiles of the company that most people buy into. Whatever the herd wants, I want that too; “cause we can’t all be wrong”. Or more simply the price of a stock is dependent entirely upon how many buyers want to own it/ and that, to the majority of investors: has nothing or very little to do with actual company earnings or assets. Buy the rumor (it might)/ sell the gossip (I heard).
Some investment groups hold one trillion dollars in assets: which means they can manipulate the market at any time they choose. Buying volume to make the stock look good. Selling the price, to gather their winnings, at your loss. You don’t stand a chance. And yet the people say “I am a winner”/ because they accumulated numbers, that have absolutely no real attachment to any reality. The pyramid scheme works: because the bottom layers never try to spend the money “they want more”. When they feel like they have money they can spend/ then the entire scheme collapses. Because reality does not adhere to any fantasy illusions. Numbers don’t matter/ reality by its own truth does.
