Perhaps the 2008 Crash was in fact a huge financial heist.
It just seems like it. One huge heist, followed by lots of small heists.
So much outright rigging, packaging of debt, and the obvious slowdown of production, also I do think there is a natural curve in consumerism, and I think it was topping out when the crash began. The petty heists are meant to keep it that way.
I have to say that jurisdictions that operate a debt based economy must be subject to the stock market, and GDP balance.
The UK just wiped out any value in its economy with Brexit. However it was just a false economy anyway.
If the UK continues with the Brexit strategy, it could very well undo the whole socioeconomic model worldwide.
Notice the Russians are launching the State version of Bitcoin. Very clever. Belt and road transactions, and oil in crypto. A stable platform naturally! That's what I like about my perception of the Russians, Great diplomats, and better gamblers! There is nothing like a calculated risk when it comes to human nature. The Bitcoin like anything, is all anyone will pay for it. It's not backed by any financial institution, and isn't taxed. How better to finance a worthwhile project than by mere speculators who are willing to burn money.
I decided that Bitcoin was the carrot to get all the investment into Blockchain mines, and now the capability is there, State Bitcoin mines are probably the next leap forward, with of course the emeralds being used for data storage.
I have to write this stuff down when I remember it, or it would be lost forever. My brain is like soup.
