Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World ~ Compound Interest

Acknowledging Compound Interest

I am;

A = P(1 + r)5


A = The Amount Owed

P = the Amount Borrowed

1 + r = The Interest Rate

5 = the Number of Years

If r is 6% compounded annually for 5 years, I look like this;

A = P(1.06 x 1.06 x 1.06 x 1.06 x 1.06)

If no limits are placed on me, if I am never retired, if instead of being paid off, if my principal rolls over annually, I grow exponentially, year after year upon myself and look like this;



If I am a Federal Reserve Note (Note = I.O.U.), I become the publicly admitted U.S. National Debt and look like this;



As a Note, I originate as debt, am debt and am compounded. That call you hear, that unmistakable sound, when I expand, a bubble – The Roaring 20’s, the call home in the 50’s, the ramp up in the 80’s, the end of the century boom.

That hush you fear, the Dust Bowl of the 30’s, the wailing sounds of Hank Paulson, the bubble burst after the millennium.

I am also strategy. I shape the world. When I come collecting this time, I will look like this;



I am all these things, I am inflation and deflation, I am bubble and I am burst bubble but most of all, I am God because to me, you bow.
