Not much to dissolve really. We have been reduced over the centuries. What's left is not worth bothering about. Just leave us alone we are not hurting anyone.

In the far future, the Empire of Australia will send peace-keeping forces all over the world. Eventually, all peoples will see the light, and a new dawn of glorious marsupial hegemony will dawn...

(watching Aussie rules football will be compulsory, a small price to pay for world peace...)

The GDP of the State of Florida is expected to break 1 trillion dollars this year, which will make us the 17th largest economy in the world. Who is the 18th, you might ask? The Netherlands. We finally beat them at something other than face eating zombies. Flor---Da! Flor--Da!
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I bet the differential is only due to spending on guns and ammo... :tea:

90% of that 1 trillion is probably guns and ammo. The rest is flame throwers for putting down the face eating zombies...

I use the traditional definition, having lots of money. Or using a hella butter in sauces.

Money can't buy happiness but it will buy a boat, which is close enough.

Mind you, growth is a double edged sword and I'm not really a proponent. I fucking hate what the developers are doing to my home, I'd hang them from lampposts and beat them with Portuguese Man-O-War tentacles if I had my druthers. There are still pockets of Old Florida left, we were going to sell up and move up to the Panhandle area to get away from the Goddamn Yankees before Swaziland popped up on the radar. We'll keep at least one house here in Condominium Hell for a while, see if we can ride the next property bubble. I just need to work on my financial prognostication skills so we can sell before it inevitably pops. I'd kick myself if we sold now and a few years later it was worth another 100G.

What do you think happens in free markets with little regulation? Of course you get out of control development.

Regarding the property bubble, it's going to blow pretty soon, I reckon. I'd sell now while you can.
