Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Financial speculation is the sole area remaining that offers returns of interest to the top 1% of wealth holders. Unfortunately such gains are intermittent at best and decreasing along with the productivity of the real economy, which is where 99% of us live.

SURPLUS INCOME is the first prerequisite for "investment", ie. renting money.

Demand for INTEREST PAYMENT (usury) is the biggest, most invidious, longest running lie in polemic promising "national" economic "growth," allocation, and moralism.

It's got to stop. It should be banned by governments for every, any, and all private sector "capital raising" solicitation.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
