Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Does that include the monetary value of bubbles, Ponzi schemes, and other market manipulations?

As usual, there has to be - and there isn't - a distinction between intangible value creation, and intangible thievery and mendacious accounting.

And even the service sector has significant infrastructure costs. It would be interesting to compare the energy and raw material costs needed to produce and run a server and a car.

I suspect the total resource bill would be closer than many people realise.
