The world may be well aware of UFOs, but to come out with the information would be an admission of guilt on the part of all governments of the world. The repercussions and possible rioting could be tremendous. Not to mention that nobody in government who is keeping this secret will be safe once the info is let out. Acknowledgement of a cover up will cause immediate investigations and removal of many political and military people and insitutions who were in on the secret. The parties involved may react to such a situation with force, especially the military. Unless you think people won't be calling for heads to roll. I will be calling for it. At least unless I'm pacified with a bullet or some other means.

I am still unclear how such a revelation would collapse world economies. I mean I've heard this excuse before - just don't get it. Thanks to Star Trek, Star Wars, X-Files, Roswell, and other shows for TV & theater, nearly the whole populace of the western world has been prepared if not made hungry for official revelations of e.t. life.
Assuming e.t.'s exist and that their presence is being covered up - there must be other reasons for the cover-up - particularly technology transfers whether by crashed Roswell-ian incidents or by direct interaction with the e.t.'s.
