Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Nah, don't be silly. The super-rich can spend enough money to keep the economy ticking over with their demand for services. There is no limit to the consumption of the rich. Honest. I mean, you might argue that most of what they do is shuttle money among themselves - buying and selling property, art and so on - and that the amount that they spend on consumption is relatively small, but that would make you a commie.
