I asked myself: How is it that the stocks are always rising? How is money generated every year so that the value of a company rises?
I mean, at some point there is a finite amount of money in the system, isn't it? Right now people assume that the stock market is overheated and not many sources are left where money can come from to make it rise even higher.
Now my question is: How and where is money coming from? I know, people invest, but at some point they take money from point A to B and don't create it.
Is there a basic book out there which explains the basics? Not for dummies but also not for experts who assume to know everything. Maybe a pragmatic economics book?
