by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
In my various interviews, speeches, q&a sessions and other public interactions, there’s one question that seems to come up over and over. It’s usually delivered in a half-joking way, almost as if the questioner isn’t really serious. But they ask it anyway: “How do we make money from all of this?”
However hesitantly it may be asked, I realize this is a serious question. We all still live in a world where, like it or not, 99.9% of the people around us still treat these colorful pieces of debt-based central bank authorized funny money as the only possible form of payment. And that means we all need to find ways to collect them. So my standard reply is equally half-joking, half deadly serious: “If you’re looking to make money, you’ll never go broke investing in the military-industrial complex.”
I wish I was wrong about that. Sadly, as the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) outlines in their annual report on global military expenditure, I’m depressingly right.
