And you have to wonder what other means to create sector driven economies.

Lets see....

1- Y2K...all the money spent testing all the equipment in all industries, all the software replacements, all the programmer jobs converting databases, all the generators, all the weapons, all the food kits and water jugs.

2- 911 ...governement contractors, security firms, security equipment, again with the software,...and many jobs at the airports, a new government agency with many jobs, ..etc

3- Blackouts,....again with the generators, food stockpiling, ..

4- anthrax....duct tape, plastic sheeting..

It just seems that every couple of years, little sector economies are created by an event, and then fizzle out within a couple of years.

I am not sure about the balckouts. They would not have been as effective as the others. You may be onto something. Or you may be looking to far into something as well.

The same thing applies with privatised military contractors. They are they biggest money makers for the biggest economies and in order for them to continue to exist and create such revenues there needs to be wars. (The military industrial complex)

Some programmers certainly do this kind of thing a lot, if called in to fix a companies system they'll leave a bug that'll active in a couple of weeks, month or so, so they have to come back and fix it again and of course, get more money.
