Why The Unraveling Will Accelerate

General Ideas

Sclerotic, hidebound institutions optimized for linear stability and permanent growth are simply not designed to adapt to non-linear change and disruption of permanent growth.

Since the first news of pandemic in late January, I’ve been discussing potential accelerants to the unraveling of our fragile financial system: second-order effects (initial travel restrictions and layoffs were first-order effects, new waves of layoffs are second-order effects) and the shift from linear dynamics (add 1 to inputs, that changes output by 1) to non-linear: (add 1 to inputs, that changes output by 10).

The system appears stable until a catalyst pushes it off the cliff. Catalysts come in a variety of forms, from the apparently modest “straw that breaks the came’s back” to a broad awakening that the status quo simply isn’t capable of adapting successfully to new realities.

Financial catalysts tend to result in sudden, cataclysmic collapses in liquidity, solvency and sentiment. While the Federal Reserve can “fix” liquidity crises by creating currency out of thin air, that doesn’t make bankrupt firms solvent or make employers hire employees. Once complacent confidence slides into cautious fear, massive liquidity injections to keep the system from crashing are understood as last-ditch desperation.

Social-political catalysts are slower but much more difficult to reverse. While the media’s attention has been focused on the protests stemming from long-standing institutional bias, As Mark, Jesse and I discuss in Salon #14: Jobageddon and the Coming Education Revolts, two other social-political catalysts are gathering momentum:

1. The failure of our education complex to provide workable childcare/learning solutions

2. The hope of a V-shaped recovery in employment collapses.

As I mention in the podcast, there is a class dynamic in these potential catalysts that few mainstream pundits follow to the logical conclusion. When socio-economic distress is limited to the politically powerless working class–for example, the blatant exploitation of gig-economy and contract workers–the power structure can safely ignore the brewing crisis because the distressed workforce has insufficient economic-political power to threaten the rule of the Power Elites.

But when the top 20% of the workforce that accounts for 50% of all consumer spending and 80% of the citizenry’s political voice is in distress, the Power Elites better pay attention. Nobody in power really cared if lower-income households struggled with juggling childcare and getting to work; but when Mr. and Ms. Technocrat are struggling, suddenly it’s an issue that can’t be ignored.

The same dynamic is also in play in the 21% unemployment that’s accelerating to 25% unemployment. As long as it was the marginal workforce that was losing jobs, the power structure reckoned unemployment was a solution.

But as the second-order effects gain momentum, middle-class jobs will start vanishing and unemployment won’t be enough to pay bloated mortgage payments, property tax bills, etc., and the defaults of student loans, credit cards, auto loans and mortgages will start piling up.

As people awaken to the fact that the V-shaped recovery was a fantasy, sentiment will slide from confidence to angst. The failure of institutions to adapt to new realities will be impossible to deny, and the choices may boil down to opting out (i.e. assemble informal groups of households that pool resources to hire a private tutor for home-schooling their children) to organized revolt (i.e. teachers’ union strikes).

Sclerotic, hidebound institutions optimized for linear stability and permanent growth are simply not designed to adapt to non-linear change and disruption of permanent growth. Systems stripped of buffers are fragile, systems stripped of feedback are fragile, systems that optimize doing more of what’s failed spectacularly are fragile, systems that are little more than fractals of incompetence are fragile, systems that rely on the artifice of denial and fantasy are fragile.

Fragile systems break. This is why the unraveling is accelerating.

    The hijacking of the left with wokeism, safetyism, and cancel culture is mainly based on racism and predominantly black racism plus to a lesser extent gender inequality and orientation. The attacking the white male as the villain is the result. The white conservative male who refuses to take a knee is the targeted group and especially the deplorables of the flyover. This is purely a tool of the wealthy white liberal democratic power base which includes the wealthy privileged class who have no intentions of giving up their class privilege. The expect to draw blood from the wealthy white conservative class and deplorable. Wealthy liberals intend to remain whole themselves. This hypocrisy is of course backfiring because when you base your political polices on race and identity you pit one group against another by the policy’s nature. The attacks on white conservative males and deplorables have only limited opportunity. Once that fight is saturated then these SJW are turning on themselves:

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/biden-campaign-mistreating-latino-field-organizers-and-suppressing-latino-vote-according

    “95 field organizers for the Florida Democratic Party have accused Joe Biden’s campaign of mistreatment, and ‘suppressing the Latino vote’ among other things. In a scathing seven-page letter obtained by the Miami Herald, field organizers levied eight allegations against the campaign surrounding the lack of a “fully accountable field plan.” Among the claims: mistreatment of field organizers, relocating trained staff members without explanation, lack of organizing resources and taking on volunteers who are then left in limbo. -Miami Herald We can only imagine that for nearly 100 Florida organizers to claim the Biden campaign has neglected Latinos – an accusation which could damage the former VP just 100 days out from the general election, in a battleground state – and as polls show waning enthusiasm from Latino voters, that things must be genuinely bad. According to the letter, Biden’s campaign lacks key infrastructure and has perpetuated a “toxic” work culture that has damaged morale among staffers. In one grievance, several organizers were recently transferred from a heavily Puerto-Rican region to another part of the state with a small percentage of Hispanics. “Four of five Spanish-speaking organizers along the I-4 corridor who were moved to North Florida were Puerto Rican,” reads the letter, adding that input from staffers in tune with Puerto Rican residents living in Central Florida is often dismissed.”

    Tens Of Thousands March In Russia During Second Week Of Anti-Putin Protests

    Tens of thousands of Russians marched in the city of Khabarovsk over the arrest of a regional governor on charges of murder, in what is now the second week of protests against the Kremlin. Another video from the large-scale #protest march today in #Khabarovsk, eastern #Russia, where estimated 95,000 people are protesting against Putin…Protesters claim the charges against Furgal are unsubstantiated, and he should be allowed to stand trial at home. He stands accused of involvement in the murders of several businessmen in 2004 and 2005 when he was a businessman in the timber and metals industries – charges which he has denied. “People are offended,” said protester Dmitry Kachalin. “I think people take to the streets because their vote in the 2018 election was taken away.” Unlike Moscow, where police usually move quickly to disperse unsanctioned opposition protests, authorities haven’t interfered with unauthorized demonstrations in Khabarovsk, apparently expecting them to fizzle out over time. But daily protests, peaking at weekends, have gone on for two weeks, reflecting anger against what local residents see as Moscow’s disrespect of their choice and simmering discontent with Putin’s rule. Local officials’ attempts to discourage people from joining the demonstrations by warning about the risk of coronavirus infection have been unsuccessful. -TIME

    “A Look Inside The $52 Trillion Bubble That Has “Hijacked China’s Economy”
    https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/look-inside-52-trillion-bubble-has-hijacked-chinas-economy

    “More than three years ago, we explained why “the fate of the world economy is in the hands of China’s housing bubble.” As we said at the time, “China has always been a serial bubble inflator courtesy of a closed (capital account) economy, and nearly $30 trillion in bank deposits [$40 trillion as of July 2020] which slosh from one asset class to another, be it the stock market, bitcoin, commodities, farm animals or – most often – housing. ” Why is it so important for China to consistently reflate this bubble? The answer is simple: for China’s middle class there is no more important asset than housing: as Deutsche’s Zhiewi Zhang wrote in 2017 when discussing the macro and market consequences of the Chinese bubble, it is nothing more (or less) than “a massive wealth effect.” Furthermore, unlike the US, which is hyperfinancialized and the bulk of household net worth is in financial assets (less than 30% is in real estate), in China it is the opposite, and roughly three-quarters of all household worth is in real estate…And since a global healthy economy starts with a growing, stable and inflating Chinese economy, unless China’s housing bubble is growing at a steady, measured pace created a “wealth effect” illusion among several hundred million middle-class Chinese, we concluded three years ago that the global economy is just as reliant on China’s housing market as it is on the global – and certainly US – stock market…Some more statistics: “the total value of Chinese homes and developers’ inventory hit $52 trillion in 2019, according to Goldman Sachs, twice the size of the U.S. residential market and outstripping even the entire U.S. bond market.” China’s housing market is certainly bigger than the US stock market, and at its current growth rate will surpass the total value of all global stocks (which is currently about $85 trillion) in just a few years!.. Indeed, as noted above, the WSJ confirms that “the central problem in China is that buyers have figured out the government doesn’t appear to be willing to let the market fall. If home prices did drop significantly, it would wipe out most citizens’ primary source of wealth and potentially trigger unrest”, something we have been saying for more than half a decade…no one has any idea how Chinese officials can manage the problem without destabilizing the broader economy. Even if the market stays strong, it creates headaches for policy makers, who have had to hold off on more aggressive economic stimulus this year—which some analysts say is needed—partly because of fears it will inflate housing further… there are now 65 million empty units. Among families who owned two properties, the vacancy rate reached 39.4%, and among those that owned three or more, 48.2% were empty.”

    That’s only in 30 years with no end in sight.

    Important is that China has an average IQ off 100, THAT is the parameter that should scare the hell out of you, where you are stuck with a (rapidly growing) dark population of 40% in the useless IQ80-90 range. Now, you are of course too kosher-media brainwashed to ever openly recognized these kind of “racist facts”, but I don’t.

    “the 3 gorges dam will likely not break.”

    I certainly hope so, as I have good geopolitical use for 1350 million Chinese. Their environmental and overpopulation problems can be solved by expanding into Australia (just like overpopulated Europe expanded in North-America). Rest assured they are planning for that opportunity:

    “Is China’s Massive Three Gorges Dam On The Edge Of Failure?”

    We are talking about 39 mountains of water of 1 km3 each, with the potential to affect the lives of 400 million people. The devastation would be enormous and China would be thrown back with many years. Rest assured they keep their fingers crossed in Washington (not to mention Australia), as it would imply a sudden unexpected geopolitical boost to the US empire.

    However, after repeated denials, Beijing recently admitted the wall has ‘leaked, moved and distorted’. A break would spell China’s Chernobyl moment.

    More rain is expected for the coming days.

    I hope the dam holds, for starters because breaking would be devastating for my geopolitical designs.

    At any rate, the Chinese are well advised to next time hire the Dutch if they have to repair the dam. They know how to deal with water like nobody else on the planet. Because if we don’t, we drown:

    “LOL, millions of innocent people do not mean shit in your geopolitical design. You need and want China to war on people. You answered my criticism that you are a blood thirsty racist fraud.”

    I knew he would react to this.

    The Ozarks asshole is angry that I DON’T want to see millions of Chinese die (he DOES) and have China strong enough to kick China-strangling anglo ass out of the South China Sea and initiate CW2, that is going to happen anyway, because of race, he professes to ignore, but in the real world he sneaks off to the Ozarks and have (or had rather) an escape route to white Italy under in his drawer (until his wife figured him out just in time).

    Virtue signaling until the last moment and meanwhile hypocritical to the core.

    Anglos, the worst enemy of the white race (most of all to themselves), because they lend their services to (((those))) globalists, who want to eliminate white people from the face of this earth. And “racism!” howling clown umpire dave is standing by to ensure that he himself gets wiped out. Now getting umpire dave wiped out from the face of this earth IS a good idea.

    The Three Gorges Dam breaking would only mean 5-10 years delay of execution, pun intended.

    More imperial decline:

    https://www.rt.com/news/496584-germany-withdrawl-troops-gas/

    “Trump says US won’t protect Germany as it ‘pays Russia billions for energy’ in 1st tweet after Pentagon announces troop withdrawal”

    We need zero protection against Russia, that aspires to join the European club. As if 140 million Russians with 4T GDP could occupy a Europe of 500 million with 23T GDP.

    But the US doesn’t want Russia to join the European club, because 640 million white Europeans would make short shrift with any notion of American leadership in the West. In fact the West would be abolished and rebranded “The North” and turn the US de facto into an geographical outlier (western outskirts).

    But perhaps Trump is a closet white nationalist and hopes that exactly that happens. Removing US troops from Germany doesn’t exactly strengthen US hold onto Europe. Perhaps he is fooling the US deep state in pretending he is serving US interests, where in reality he is paving the way for Europe to escape from empire and get its hands free to later intervene into “North-American Troubles”.

    “The Ozarks asshole is angry that I DON’T want to see millions of Chinese die (he DOES)”
    Sure you do cloggo, “breaking would be devastating for my geopolitical designs” You are a liar too

    “but in the real world he sneaks off to the Ozarks and have (or had rather) an escape route to white Italy under in his drawer (until his wife figured him out just in time).”

    I am fine here in the Ozarks, cloggo. We are no an overpopulated postage stamp with the sea rising all around. I can go to Italy if I choose. I have several places I can go. You are fucked with nowhere to go.

    “And “racism!” howling clown umpire dave is standing by to ensure that he himself gets wiped out. Now getting umpire dave wiped out from the face of this earth IS a good idea.”

    Cloggo, race ranting again. I am not worried longer turn. If the rapid liberals get in they will be unpopular before long. I am practicing localism so I will adapt much better than you will, cloggo.

    “We need zero protection against Russia, that aspires to join the European club. As if 140 million Russians with 4T GDP could occupy a Europe of 500 million with 23T GDP”

    More PBM nonsense from the cloggo who thinks magically Russia wants to come into the European fold as a partner. Russia will dominate you cloggo. They have the military to do it. Eurotards don’t have a competent military to resist them. They will have you by the balls with energy and a military. #SCREWED#
