As we’ve just finished recovering from our Thanksgiving feasts and mustered the courage to step back onto the scales to assess the damage that’s been done, I encourage everyone to also assess their lives in terms of generosity.
We’ve all heard about possible tax increases to help pay for the government’s $11 trillion of money creation and borrowing that is supposed to help us recover from the economic devastation caused by Washington’s policy that forced healthy Americans to stay in their houses and 16 million to lose their jobs. Here is a fun fact: over the last 18 months, we’ve created 40% of the total amount of money that was created from 1776 until 2021! In fact, if you tried to count our national debt, which stands at roughly $29 trillion, and you were able to count one-digit per second, it would take you just over 900,000 years to do it. So, Jesus of Nazareth could have started counting when he was born and he would still have 898,000 years left of counting to do. Simply mind-boggling.
