Report If The Economy Really Is Recovering... in House prices and the economy Posted March 31, 2013 I don't know much about these things but i feel like this is a bit like the start of a crack up boom If the world wishes to deplete savings via subversion, inflation and potential forfeiture then the money will transfer to assets Do you mean tangible assets?

Or some may decide to spend it on useless tat, like shiny new cars, kitchens and holidays.
