Technology has leapfrogged the banking sector, rendering it as obsolete as
buggy whips. So why are we devoting 9% of our economy to an obsolete parasite?
Financial sector profits now total a staggering 4.5% of GDP (gross domestic product),
while the expenses generated by financial churning account for another 4.5% of the economy.
Software and existing non-Wall Street/too-big-to-fail institutions could replace
the entire Wall Street/banking sector and drop costs to .5% of GDP, saving us 8+%
of our GDP ($1.25 trillion) that is currently siphoned off by parasitic middlemen. The banking
sector is Exhibit A in the
Middleman-Skimming Economy (February 11, 2014).
