It reminds me of Dillan Radagin explanation with a hot potato game. one potatoe passed around is 25 toss it 26 toss it again and again and it goes up to 300 then the last person gets the potato is volia it goes back to 25. Where did all the money go. What money. It was just thin air and the bankers went home richer.

When were all those additions put in though, it could explain the increase in selling price at least.
