If I get $100, how long till that $100 is in a rich mans pocket anyway? 2 transactions? 5 transactions? 10 transactions? I don't pretend to know the actual number, but all that $100 ends up in a rich mans pocket pretty goddamned soon. We all know that. It doesn't matter if you spend it at your neighbor kids lemonade stand or at a car dealership...the rich man has that $100 pretty damn soon.
But you know what? That ain't fast enough. At all. They don't want you to ever even touch it. Your grimy fingerprints on their $100 are disgusting to them. The only satisfactory "velocity of money" is at fuckin' light speed into a rich mans bank account. No stops...no transactions. Just deposit the money in the rich mans account.
