Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Interesting representation.

It serves to emphasise the sheer insanity of a system which measures an Economy not upon "Value" but upon "Claims over Value" issued by credit institutions.

AntiMatter instead of Matter

Value is - unlike Price - indefinable - or better, definable only in relative terms - and comes in many forms, of which perhaps the most important are:
(a) "Emotional Value" - at its most basic, the need to love and to be loved, but extending into the concept of Society;
(b) "Spiritual Value" - who am I? Why am I here? Questions in relation to God and the relationship with the eternal.

We must re-base, or reverse the polarity, of our current system so that it is no longer based upon a Deficit.
