Education Will Save The Economy

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Now under the conditions of the economic crisis, people’s level of wellbeing is decreasing. Will the result be that the rich will rise even higher and become “kings” and people will envy them even more?

Answer: No, there is a splitting point here. The point is that wealth has reached its extreme expression. Therefore, the national and private debts, the economic pyramids, have all become so unmanageable that they are actually facing the danger of disappearing. You might need to get rid of these debts, and these people may lose everything instantly. No matter how many pieces of papers they have, they will be worth nothing.

So the question is what should we do with what we’ve reached in the last 50-60 years, when we have switched the real value of gold with “green papers,” and have created a pyramid, network marketing, which in the absence of economic growth the whole pyramid collapses and there is no way to stop it. In addition, further growth of the pyramid is also impossible since it has reached a critical point. So the powers that be in the world are trying to get together, but they cannot reach any conclusions since there is no other way but to destroy this pyramid.

We must show them that there is no need to destroy it. We should only start dealing with education. If we begin to educate the public, we will find a new way to reach harmony, which can gradually be introduced into the current system. Then we will be able to come out of this crisis in an easy, gentle way. The rule of money will continue only in certain frameworks, let’s say the highest salaries might be ten times higher than the lowest, but no more than that. After all, this is better than the collapse the banks and all these people may suffer, if they fall from a great height.
