​Are you' saying there is no such thing as wealth?​

Nothing because government can do what you and I can not, they can do what
they've done every years since 1835 (except for the last 2 Clinton years)
, they can print more money. I realize wealth is not the same as money and
it's much more difficult to print wealth than money, but it can be done and
it's easier to do than it once was and its getting easier every day. If
money and wealth are to stay in sync and the world gets wealthier then
governments will need to put their trusty old printing press into overdrive
from time to time. Just be careful, don't over-crank it as Germany did in
1920 or under-crank it as the USA did in 1929 .
