The banking system completely lost it's stability in September of 2008, resulting in an unprecedented, world-wide effort to "stabilize" the global economic system. And, the truth is, they lost their stability as a result of moving away from the truth that once was accuracy and accountability in the banking system.
The loss of integrity across the entire economic complex, especially in the real estate world, led to massive instability that persists today, some 5 years later. The problems continue because the truth or "gold standard" if you will, has been obscured and polluted by recent investing "innovations' in finance, insurance and real estate.
There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof is death.
When you veer off the straight, honest, truthful path, you get off into deception. You get fooled. Just ask Bernie Madoff, he found it relatively easy to veer people off the safe, proven path, with clever deceptions designed to "look like the real thing". People thought Bernie was "the real deal". After all, he'd once been head of the SEC. His credentials were, "impeccable". He pulled off one of the most amazing financial deceptions in the history of the world. But he, like many of his equally dishonest counterparts were eventually exposed by the very instability of the economic system, which they contributed to by their fraud. The blame for today's world instability can be cast far and wide.
The trends in instability are unmistakable and everyone knows that they are there. The truth is, things are getting more and more unstable, as we move farther and farther away from truths that once were viewed as simple common sense.
The more everyone ignores truth, the more unstable things will become. The level of instability in a given system, business, organization, institution or government entity, is directly in proportion to the degree of deception being perpetrated inside.
