  5. More consequences of 200,000 euro a year is the LIMIT!

More consequences of 200,000 euro is the limit! 

Humans must survive so there must be enough food.
A simple truth but the leaders of our society are not impressed by this demand because everything is expressed in money in the first place money that vanishes in the pockets of the own already privileged group.
Leaders do not concentrate on the production of human basic necessities but are guided by money. How much the production of the necessary food cost is more important than the fact that each year ten million kids die before they are five years old. These kids do not have the money to buy food and are excluded from our economy except for a few coins that are thrown in their direction from the balconies of the mansions that are habituated by the very well-to-do Happy Few.  

Other basic necessities are a drainage system, a decent living place and enough trains and roads to transport people and goods.
In Western countries these basic goods are more or less available for everybody but in the rest of the world they are often scarce.
Therefore the Chinese economy is not growing by ten percent a year. Most of this growth is generated by making basic products that are needed to survive. And surviving cannot be expressed in money.  

A same story can be told about clean drinking water, electricity and medical care.
These basic commodities are more and more produced by private enterprises lead by people who are not guided by the necessity to produce basic goods but by the idea to get as much money as possible.
When they can not spend their surplus money anymore, the reason to produce drinking water, food, drainage systems, trains, roads or cars will change. Then leaders will become dominated by the idea that they have to produce products that are necessary for the People to survive. Money they cannot spend anymore will become a secondary factor.

200,000 euro a year is the LIMIT!
