Do you remember my post, Things that Make You Go Hmmm? Well, I want to amend that to HOLY CRAP! This story is why people should not be so quick to dismiss conspiracy theorists:
Now, before you dismiss this story because of the source, consider this story from FORBES:
That last story mentions runs on banks and the great crash before the Great Depression. OK, have you heard all the fuss about banks starting to restrict how much of your money you can withdraw without a written explanation? If not, read my first story about Things that Make You Go Hmmm, the links to that information are in there. Then – keeping ALL of this in mind – have a look at this:
One last thing: do you know how everyone refused to listen when people tried to warn them that the Patriot Act would go bad and get out of hand? Or how many people refused to listen when they were warned that Obamacare would go bad and get out of hand? So. here’s my question for you now:
Are you in the group who is refusing to listen when people try to warn you that there is an economic collapse coming?
Or are you just going to scoff and mock and call them ‘conspiracy theorists’ because there’s “no evidence’ of any economic trouble on the horizon?
[NOTE: now, if you want to get into conspiracy theory, we can talk about how likely it is that the 1930 crash was manufactured as a result of the fiscal chaos in Europe caused by the train wreck that was Wilson’s peace treaty after WW I. I’m sure that the fact Keynes came to fame over advocating manipulation of fiscal policy at that time was just a coincidence, and that there are no possible parallels between then and now. I mean, heck, this chart is just a fluke aberration…right? 😉 ]
