Despite the fact that people produce more wealth now than ever before in history (due to technological advances in production, for example), we seem to get poorer and poorer while a few become very wealthy.
Then, at the same time, we run to wealthy individuals to give us money at exorbitant interest rates to fill in the gap, and we get even poorer still trying to pay back the ever increasing debt.
Does the word 'treadmill' come to mind to you, too?
