Margaret Thatcher made the big mistake of thinking that the Banks and Financial Service Industries were all that were needed to make Britain prosper.

Inequality is the main problem.

The rich elite have too much money. The ordinary citizens have too little.


  1. The London based economy has always acted like a concrete wall to keep out outsiders. There are more class outsiders and of course it looks worse as they share the same limited rations as in less crowded times. At this later date ln life, I comment from the point of view of having found a way to drill a small hole in the concrete wall, say the width of a drinking straw. There is plenty to eat and drink but all your neighbours are obscene.

  2. Because of compound interest, poor people become more impoverished, and the super-rich become enriched. Money flows upwards from the poor to the super-rich. It is an inevitable consequence of money issued as debt and compound interest.
