You know what, I think it was.
In fact, I think the global recession is deliberate.
When it boils down to it, the global markets rely on three things - ignorance, numbers and confidence.
All of those three factors aren't tangible at all.
Ignorance is a given - I approximate that 90% + of people have no idea how financial institutions work, nor do most care as long as they can access
their pay and buy the items they want.
Numbers exist in the virtual realm, but have no basis in actual reality with regards to the sums of money that have been banded about as being at
stake. Hundreds of billions of dollars only exist in the imaginations of bankers and as zeros on computer screens. Money is actually only worth what
the populace believes it to be, which is why the shroud of ignorance works so well for bankers.
Sure, bankers and accountants will tell you thats not the case, and that everything has its worth. Ask one to show you $100billion in actual real
terms and see what they come up with. Pieces of paper? Yeah, right
But the real killer is "confidence". Of the three confidence is what causes problems. Confidence is - in money market terms, a WMD.
And the confidence bomb has - in my opinion - been detonated.
Think about it. Before the middle of last year, no one particularly cared about sub-prime mortgages (ignorance!) and the credit crunch. The banks were
happy trading ones and zeros with each other in the virtual world and then, all of a sudden, somone lost confidence in the ability of a bank to
service its debts.
The confidence bomb is a very small device, but its very powerful. All it needs is one established figure, or company, to raise the idea of a loss of
confidence and a cascade reaction starts - its almost like playing that block game - Jenga - pull the right part out and the whole lot comes down.
So if someone like a Soros, or a Rothchild, or even a lesser person like a Greenspan suddenly loses "confidence"..
Not only do I think its been orchestrated, I think that the increase in oil prices that happened immediately before
all this broke was a test
to see how far people would be stretched globally, and also a little test of the confidence device - there was no shortage of oil, there was no
conflict preventing its production - what there actually was were a few select people speculating
on stocks, affecting confidence
forcing the prices up. When oil prices reached such high levels that national protests were on the cards, the market suddenly stabilised and has since
dropped, and instead the banking system has gone into free fall - why?
Well to me, its a forced devaluation. A set up designed to move away from an oil based economy. By bringing sections of the market down, it becomes
cheaper to re-tool, creates a large labour pool, and means that the Big-Money men can do a neat trick usually reserved for Pheonix's by building
themselves back up out of the ashes of the old system.
The set up/incentive was there with the oil prices, the labour pool is growing with lay-offs on a daily basis, businesses are ripe for acquisitions if
profitable or write off's if they aren't, and - I expect - sooner or later the words "hydrogen based economy" is going to be dripping off
Of course, I may be wrong - but I do like a good conspiracy.
