The reason you see more and more stuff trying to get you on subscriptions and installments is because they realize the consumer base has basically been bled dry. So much of the deposable income that the economy needs to thrive is now wrapped up in rent, food, gas, child care, healthcare etc that the buyer base don’t got money to buy this shit.
Those that understand how fake money is, know that as soon as people stop being able to afford a 1,000 luxury, that luxury stops being worth a 1000$.
The “free market” is supposed to say that as the demand drops due to people not buying so should the price but the point is big money has gotten so big they would rather eat the losses than come down on price. Ok boom so now how do we keep selling stuff to a population that is running out of dollars to give for useless things?
Low interest financing. We already drained you of everything you own, now let me start working on draining you or what you WOULD have in the future.
Rather than support the economy and make it so people can afford that 1000$ luxury they would rather sabotage the economy and let you pay now with hours of work you WILL do later. If not we run the risk of you getting to a point where you say “I have enough luxury” and then you stop being profitable to THEM.
The system wants to make sure that you keep having a reason to work until you are so old the system don’t need you anymore, bonus points if they can get your entire life worth of work out of you without you ever actually purchasing or owning anything you can pass down. In that sense you were a worker your entire life, and all the profit went to some noble lord and you died a peasant.
So now it’s enough to take you for everything you got, now we gotta take you for everything you were gonna be.
