Pyramid selling is supposed to be a no-no. I can see no other way to describe the financial system and the stock market operations these days. One ot these days the pyramid will get to high and too wide at the base to live with.
Pyramid selling relies on growth. The growth does not have to be productive. All you need is more and more "units" being added to build a new base. Each time a new layer is started the base gets bigger and more are needed.
Sound familiar? Does it sound like the financial "brains" and the pollies talking? It does to me. Growth, growth, growth, we hear it all the time. Is it actually pyramid sellers taking their pound of flesh without doing their fair share towards their own needs and wants?.
