Re: Junior economics question II: what's this obsession with economic growth?
They don't print it anymore, anyway.
I work all week, and get a numder accredited to my account. I take some out as cash, send some of it out using debit cards, or internet transactions, "earn" another percentage of what's left over as interest, and another amount is automatically taken out of my account to pay the interest on a mortgage. When I bought my house, I didn't see a cheque for whastever to hand to the seller, it just happened, and I ended up with a negative balance.
