When Systemic Uncertainty Meets Fragility – “Then The Whole Contraption Collapses In A Heap…”

When Systemic Uncertainty Meets Fragility – “Then The Whole Contraption Collapses In A Heap…” thumbnail

That’s the problem with fragility: everything looks fine on the surface until a crisis applies pressure. Then the whole rickety contraption collapses in a heap..

Life is inherently uncertain, but systems that were once considered certainties have increasingly become uncertain. Social Security is one example; recent polls reflect widespread doubts among Millennials and Gen-Xers that there will be any Social Security benefits left for them by the time they reach retirement age.

This doubt is fact-based; as the number of retirees swells, as Medicare costs soar ever higher and the number of full-time jobs paying into Social Security/ Medicare stagnates, these pay-as-you-go programs break down; Social Security is already paying out billions more than it collects from employers and employees.

Uncertainty is one thing, fragility is another. The socio-economic systems we rely on are also becoming increasingly fragile and prone to failure, for an entirely different set of reasons than those driving uncertainty.

Changing fundamentals drive uncertainty. The nation’s demographics and stagnant wages for the bottom 95% are extremely unfavorable for pay-as-you-go programs like Social Security and Medicare; their future is uncertain because the inputs and outputs are changing.

Fragility is a function of systems being thinned by cronyism, self-serving insiders, fraud, lack of transparency, lack of competition, monopolies, profiteering and a decline of quality. Systems that become too costly due to the above dynamics are hollowed out as everyone seeks some way to reduce the costs. Redundancies are stripped out, staff is slashed to the bone, senior managers with the most experience are pushed out to lower payroll costs, quality control is whacked, and inferior inputs are presented as equal to the higher quality inputs that they replace.

When these weakened systems are under pressure or face a crisis, they crumble. Shoddy materials fail, inexperienced managers make hasty, ill-informed decisions, the barebones staff is overwhelmed, equipment that wasn’t properly maintained to save money breaks down, and so on.

We’re assured by financial authorities and the media that our banking system is now monstrously resilient and robust, and it is impervious to financial crisis. You’re kidding, right? So when all the subprime auto loans go bust, and all the overleveraged commercial real estate loans go bust, and all the developing-world debt in U.S. dollars goes into default, and all the consumer debt issued to marginal borrowers goes bust, the hundreds of billions in losses are all going to be absorbed, no problem.

This is fragility writ large. You can bet the entire financial sector is making the same faulty, fragility-creating assumptions as a means of maximizing profits: only one auto loan in a hundred will go into default, near-zero commercial real estate loans will blow up, every dollar-denominated loan in the developing world will be paid in full, blah blah blah.

In other words, if we assume FantasyLand perfection of marginal borrowers–that once a global recession guts their opportunities to refinance and the income needed to service their loans, they will still magically make all payments in full and on time–the financial system is resilient.

Beneath the reassurances, the system is increasingly fragile because all the resilience has been stripped out of it to maximize profits in the current quarter. And as for the financial authorities–who believes the financial sector is serving the interests of the bottom 99.5%? Based on what evidence? Who believes the mainstream media is reporting the deteriorating fundamentals and the increasing fragility of our society’s core systems?

All we need is a few overlapping crises to reveal the structural fragility and lack of trust/certainty in our core systems. Profiteering, cronyism, self-serving insiders, a decline in quality, gaming the system, fraud, opacity, propaganda, and the erosion of competence all seem like good clean fun when the weather is calm and the sun in shining. But the true nature of our systemic failure will only be revealed when multiple storms arise and the system is pushed to the limit.

That’s the problem with fragility: everything looks fine on the surface until a crisis applies pressure. Then the whole rickety contraption collapses in a heap.

    Funny how the Social Security alarmists conveniently forget the nearly 3 trillion the government owes the fund. It is not and never was a pay as you go endeavor. The money I contributed over a lifetime was used to keep income taxes/debt lower.

  2. Duncan Idaho on Wed, 30th Aug 2017 10:27 pm 

    Yep, the funds were siphoned off for other things, to make budgets work.
    Pure theft.
    One interesting side of this, is when our repug friends passed a law the the USPS had to fund retirement out 60 years (a effort to bankrupt and privatize), they are currently cash rich.
    If interest rates ever get back to historical levels, their wealth will be amazing.

    Distract the herd from the coming collapse.  Politicize everything.  Cause governmental stagnation in order to destabilize the Trump administration.  Use cultural wedge issues to attract clicks and destroy traditional culture.  Allow narcotraffickers free admission into the U.S.  Make Disneylandish promises to the masses, then rob the future to maintain DeepState power.

    Hurricane Harvey was a warning.  It will be impossible to cure the wound.  There are no simplistic solutions.  Tainter’s revelation about increasing complexity equaling increasing fragility is becoming more manifest by the year.

    But man learns by suffering alone.

    Hurricane Harvey has hit the nation
    with flooding. At times like this,
    every American must do their part.

    If every American gave $50 to me at this
    Time of national crisis, it would make the
    difference.

    Do your part, if you don’t have $50 then
    donate $20 to me and multiplied by all
    the other people doing the same,
    it will make the difference at this crucial
    time of national calamity.

    The whole US financial system is going to implode long before they cannot pay SS, so talking about when that will happen, is a waste of time. It will happen long before they have to start cutting bennies.

    I plan to take all I can get before that time. By my calculation they still owe me for about 10 more years. We shall see. But, I am prepared, even if it happens tomorrow. ALL retirement plans, that require the US to stay solvent and stocks to grow, are dead. Only those already drawing on them will get anything.

    “That’s the problem with fragility: everything looks fine on the surface until a crisis applies pressure. Then the whole rickety contraption collapses in a heap.”

    Just mint 20 platinum one trillion dollar coins and deposit the money at Fort Knox.

    The debt will be zero.

    It will make America rich again.

    Such an easy solution, it will work.

    20,000,000,000,000 dollars divided by 1300 dollars, the price of gold, equals 581,165 metric tons of gold. The total amount of gold mined in all of history is about 181,000 metric tonnes. Not enough gold to pay the debt, that’s why you need US minted platinum one trillion dollar coins.

    Voila, problem solved.

    Doesn’t cost any money to solve the debt conundrum.

    All of the hand wringing and worry can be over.

    Read those labels closely. If they say: “Partially produced with genetic engineering” you are eating a slow poison. You may need a magnifying glass to see the fine print. I had a few here like Campbell’s soup, Bisquick, anything made with grains like soy or corn grown in the US, like cereals, etc. They are gone. I’ll stick with fruits and veggies from Europe or other countries that are not owned by Conagra/Monsanto, or that are grown here. I am anxious to get our heirloom veggies growing on the farm so I can eat more healthy.

  21. Davy on Thu, 31st Aug 2017 6:04 am 

    The problem with this article is that it has not gone the extra step into the global. It is one thing for one country to be systematically brittle and nearing threshold where shocks break boundaries of stability. It is the addition of the global with the increased distances and the decreased trust between unlike people that make it even more precarious. It is food and vital replacement parts multisource across vast webs of production and distribution. It is a global financial system that is in competitive cooperation which is untenable longer term once cooperation declines. This is about a way of life that is driven by techno development into the wall of planetary limits. It is about social fabric being frayed and torn for individual wants. It is about catch 22 decisions needed that are draconian but absolutely necessary or the worst will happen. It is about a hyper efficient society destroying itself from within in the name of an abstract of advancement. More with less is always better is the new mantra. It is about a people who live in a fantasy narrative of exceptionalism. The belief that intelligence is the basis of the universe and since we are supposed to be intelligent then we have a manifest destiny. We think we are the universes intelligence. We pretend we are god like and destine to grow out into the universe in great spaceship to colonize. We are so worried about our survival we lose track of its fragility under our feet.

    Of course the reason we are fantasizing about leaving is we destroyed a planet with overpopulation and consumption. There is little words of this from the techno optimist and science denying skydaddy believers. The fact that we do not have proper wisdom to control our urges to grow and develop says volumes for what we really are. We are a hairless ape with an oversized brain that is turning out to be an evolutionary dead end as a keystone species driving an extinction event. We are at the point of devolving into something much more primitive. It is possible it will be this event or relatively short process that either creates a new human or is our end.

    What is needed is a new and different wisdom than what we see in the status quo world today. It is really a wisdom from an earlier time in our evolution where no and less was much more respected because life then was visibly precarious. Death was nearer and involved at times whole communities. Now it is isolated and sanitized. It will be about sober and humble human subservient to nature’s ecosystem. Clarification, what is left of nature’s ecosystem. It will likely be a greatly reduced populations of maybe 500MIL or less. It is either a devolution that cleanses and creates a new human type or it will be back to being animals in caves. In our case it will be sheet metal shanties and concrete ruins with plastic utensils. We are on the cusp of great changes but not nice ones.

    The techno development will continue onward so expect more of this until it stops. It will stop because growth is a Ponzi arrangement on a finite planet. No we won’t be leaving this planet science denying techno optimistic scientist. Forget about talking about our global financial system being a Ponzi. Our whole modern society is one big Ponzi of growth and development and of exploding Population and glutinous consumption. We are on the very tip of the spear of evolution ready to sink into the mush of the primordial from whence we arose. Life is cyclical and we are part of life. Collapse and extinction do happen. It is necessary and systematic. It is nature’s nature. Ignore this at your own hazard is fine for an individual but when it is an entire human global community it is truly an ominous sign of impending doom.

    No I am not saying collapse will happen tomorrow. I am less doomish then I was just two years ago, that is if we can avoid a biggish war. I do not think we can survive as-is if we have a biggish war on the Korean Peninsula as an example. This will quickly escalate and the vital supply lines of globalism disrupted too much. If we can avoid war we will continue to manage entropy because we are a clever hairless ape but for how long? Ponzi arrangements always end, always.

    “Catalan Bid For Independence Seen In Broader Context Of European Disintegration”
    http://tinyurl.com/ya475hme

    “A deeper look shows that the much vaunted European unity is a myth. Europe is getting increasingly divided between political alliances. Southern European countries tend to integration. The Visegrad Group, made up of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia (the V4), is a bloc within the EU. In its turn, the European Union is on the verge of being divided into a «two speed» or «multi-speed» Europe. The idea of a «Federal Union» has been floated. It is expected that the final decision on the future functioning of the community will be made in December. The coming months are likely to see further turbulence. Germany holds legislative elections in September. Multi-speed Europe would create rival blocs and perpetuate divisions, with France and Germany setting the rules and others left to catch-up. Countries outside the core will be marginalized being kept outside of the decision-making process. The EU is to become a loose alliance, a patchwork of blocs within blocks. Actually, Europe has never seen such hard times in its history. The process of disintegration has started and is unstoppable. Today, the continent is divided into clubs, at times overlapping mini-coalitions based on shared geography or interests. «The purpose, even existence, of our Union is being questioned», EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini wrote in the foreword to the EU Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy – the document that emerged a year ago.”

  27. Cloggie on Thu, 31st Aug 2017 8:47 am 

    “Catalan Bid For Independence Seen In Broader Context Of European Disintegration”

    No it is not, it is a sign of Spanish disintegration. I am not aware that Catalonia seeks independence from Europe.

    It is even possible that Britain disintegrates, because the Scots want to remain part of Europe in majority.

    And these Visegrad countries do not want to become independent from Europe either, they just struggle with Americas most important vassals (Juncker and Merkel) about how Europe should look like: a third world shit hole like much of America (Juncker, Merkel) or remain proudly European (Orban, Poland and other former Soviet vassals).

    I’m telling you, Merkel should fear for her life:

    http://www.pi-news.net/angela-merkel-auch-in-ludwigshafen-ausgebuht/

    Yesterday, Ludwigshafen.

    She is booed everywhere now, e.ve.ry.day. There is a smell of a new 1989 now in Germany.

    Een the MSM can no longer ignore how Merkel is treated:

    Trump could very well be right, Merkel could be overthrown:

    Hello, I think you are dreaming unless you are over 50. The US is already disintegrating. California is trying to leave the union. Other states also. The social fabric is tearing. You can see it in the headlines more and more.

    I would not bet money that the US will still be 50 states in 20 years. If it is, it will be a 3rd world country with a fascist dictatorship, or worse, government. It is already a fascist government. The dictatorship is coming.

  29. Cloggie on Thu, 31st Aug 2017 9:51 am 

    yes it is. But USA is fused much tighter, after all it had centuries to do so, whereas the EU only had decades.

    No it isn’t. The EU has merely a budget of 1% GPD. It is a cooperation club, but was never seen as a new nation. The majority in Europe still supports European cooperation. Even hard-core nationalist Jean-Marie le Pen has admitted that his daughter lost the election because she concentrated too much on the euro and EU, where she should have concentrated on Islam and migration.

    The US didn’t have centuries time to form a real nation, which takes 500 year at least. The largest influx, mostly from Eastern Europe, happened in the 2nd half of the 19th century. And since 1965 millions of third worlders were added, who are now in the majority in the 0-5 year age bracket. America never got a real chance after 1776 to form a real nation. After slightly more than a century independence from Europe, America was already colonized again by a group who decided to use America for its planetary domination schemes. They got pretty far, but now that goal is further away than ever since 1945. For America there are only two futures:

    1. A mixed race neo-bolshevik dictatorship (not makati’s cartoonist Hollywood “fascist” dictatorship) with the Constitution abolished and every aspect of white culture with it (statues, University curriculum, etc.), where the whole idea of race is abolished altogether and criminalized, leaving the whites even more depressed then they are already today.

    2. A balkanized America, a Mexican majority South-West, a white Heartland and a mixed-race East coast.

    It is unlikely that the 2nd scenario materializes, unless the US gets embroiled in a major Eurasian war (Korea, South-China Sea, Iran) or when it tries to keep its European colony within the empire when the latter tries to escape. White America can only hope to escape if they manage t motivate themselves for a major insurrection, that could be consolidated with help from Europe.

  30. Hello on Thu, 31st Aug 2017 10:49 am 

    >>>> California is trying to leave the union

    yes yes. Every state has a few nut jobs trying to leave. From TX to VT. Means nothing. It’s a long way from a sizable momentum.

    >>>> No it isn’t. The EU has merely a budget of 1% GPD. It is a cooperation club

    yes, that’s how the US used to be, too. A co-operation club. But the long grind to ‘equalize’ using open borders, free trade, EU wide laws clearly set the direction. If the EU continues, there won’t be a difference no more between an Italian and a Belgian. Same way as there is no difference between a New Mexican and a Vermonter. Same values, same way of thinking same way of acting. A boring world, indeed.

    Some people like to be part of an ‘equalized’ huge empire. I don’t.

    clog,

    Diverse populations live in big cities. If you want to live with whites simply move to small rural towns. The problem is that small rural towns do not attract big business.

    “The US didn’t have centuries time to form a real nation, which takes 500 year at least”.

    So the US is not a real nation but is still an empire with plenty of vassal states. Wow who would have thunk it.

    In the old days empires received goods and taxes from conquered countries. Now you say the empire is crumbling because the empire wants it’s vassals to help pay for their own defense. I say let the empire dissolve and let the sorry ass vassals pay for their own defense. lol

    That may have been true in the 20th century, but I can assure you that cities like Detroit ain’t attracting any big business any more. Other big “diverse” cities will follow the example of Detroit.

    So the US is not a real nation but is still an empire with plenty of vassal states. Wow who would have thunk it.

    Yep, that’s it.

    Now you say the empire is crumbling because the empire wants it’s vassals to help pay for their own defense.

    Eh no. The empire is crumbling because large parts of the empire, both in Europe and the US, reject the “proposition nation” idea as promoted by Washington. These refusers turned out to be “evil racists” after all.
