Business cycles have four phases: prosperity, crisis, depression and recovery. William Jevons (1835-1882) introduced the Sunspot Theory, which affects climate and agricultural output.
In some bibles, there is a story about Pharaoh's dream which was interpreted by Josef as an admonition of coming droughts. He is said to have advised Pharaoh to store grains.
Another theory regarding cause of economic depression is 'war theory' which attributes prosperity to war and cessation of war to depression, such as 1929 in USA.
Today the world economy is in chaos. Currently the European governments talk of budget deficit, caused by governments' welfare expenditures, adopted during USSR. As a matter of fact, people like subsidies; they dislike over working. Consequently, the constituencies have taken into streets to vent their anger. People have lost trust in their governments world-wide.
Ironically, we find an artwork image, in good old days' fatigue uniform, advising the world that Fiddle's revolution has backfired and has no chance to survive unless capitalist tourist's money is delivered.
Amongst the 3rd world countries, there is a country whose previous fledgling infrastructure has been destroyed by a conglomeration of psychopaths, criminals, pig-headed evil-minded brutes. Of course, they enjoy the covert support of an invisible international devilish institute, which has unleashed the dogs of war to challenge the whole world without impunity. These animals are staunch advocates of a cult, idolatry or cheap ideology which pivots on constant fear, threat, torture, murder, rape, lying, fraud, spoils of war, hostage taking, confiscation, etc. The unleashed dogs follow the teachings of their 1st master. Consequently they have corrupted the whole nation. Those who could escape have done so; others have a terrible life in a prison twice as large as Texas.
On the other hand, we hear of 33 miners who are trapped 1000 meters below the surface of the earth! Can you imagine it? Wonder if, among them, there are some men suffering from claustrophobia. We have seen drawings of ants' nests equipped with all escape tunnels, therefore; it is hard to believe that the poor miners should be sent 1000 meters down a shaft without proper escape tunnels.
In any case, can it be a distraction for economic worsening? However, the show seems to be well planned and natural; it can last for some months without suspicion. Heavy equipments, rather than tanks and artillery, are brought in; families are camping at the site to watch the progress. TVs are zoomed in and every day there is one good reason to celebrate. A genius strategy. Thank you, Chilean leaders!
