My company makes a few products but buys more then it makes and operates at a loss.

My company can release more stocks into the market for additional operating capital but my investors are starting to get nervious.

My company has not yet come up with any plans on paying down the debt

We have opened a new line of credit to allow our purchasing department buy non essentials products in order to keep busy. I call this my employee Stimulus package, it keeps everyone in my organization busy.

I continue to hire and bring in migrant "undocumented workers" and pay them an pay them in cash to do some of the jobs my other employees don’t want to do. Their spouses may join our pension plan without having to work here. These workers allow my regular employees play solitaire on their PC's This insures my position as president as if too man of my employees complain to the board I may be out of a job.

I ask that you buy some of my company stock with your money so I can continue to keep the business running. Will you trade your Dollars for Stock?

How about Euro's for Dollars?

Can anyone guess the name of my "company"?

Yes, we are all players in the world's biggest Ponzi scheme. The question is, what is finally going to bring it all down? Subprime? Alt-As? CDOs? Health care? Social security? The collapse of pensions? Or the fact that that endless stream of paper money is backed by absolutely nothing?
