In the Behold A Pale Horse book William Cooper talks about this economic shock testing which seems is what is happening now. he even said they would
use oil/gas and stuff. anyone hear of this?
ECONOMIC SHOCK TESTING
In recent times, the application of Operations Research to the study public
economy has been obvious for anyone who understands the principles of schock
In shock testing of an aircraft airframe, the recoil impulse of firing a gun
mounted on that airframe causes shock waves in that structure which tell
aviation engineers the conditions under which parts of the airplane or the
whole airplane or its wings will start to vibrate or flutter like a guitar
string, a flute reed, or a tuning fork, and disintegrate or fall apart in
Economic engineers achieve the same result in studying the behavior of the
economy and the consumer public by carefully selecting a staple commodity
such as beef, coffee, gasoline, or sugar and then causing a sudden change or
shock in its price or availability, thus kicking everybody's budget and
buying habits out of shape.
They then observe the shock waves which result by monitoring the changes in
advertising, prices, and sales of that and other commodities.
The objective of such studies is to acquire know-how to set the public
economy into a predictable state of motion which will convince the public
that certain "expert" people should take control of the money system and
reestablish security (rather than liberty and justice) for all. When the
subject citizens are rendered unable to control their financial affairs,
they of course, become totally enslaved, a source of cheap labor.
Not only the price of commodities, but also the availability of labor can be
used as the means of shock testing. Labor strikes deliver excellent test
shocks to an economy, especially in the critical services areas of trucking
(transportation), communication, public utilities (energy, water, garbage
