Many people confuse the wealth earned by people who actually create new products and services with the wealth skimmed by financiers.

America’s economic illness has a name: financialization. It’s a term for the trend by which Wall Street leads by investing capital in self-serving investments that generate no new products/services, no new jobs and no improvements in productivity–the only engine that generates widespread wealth and prosperity.

Here’s an example of how financiers are destroying the U.S. and global economy.

Financiers borrow billions of dollars in nearly free money via Federal Reserve easy credit (essentially our money) and using the cash to buy back corporate shares, boosting the value of stock owned by insiders and management: no new products/services, no new jobs and no improvements in productivity.
