The conspiracy theorists would note that covid lockdowns look suspiciously like the sort of behaviours being advocated to reduce the "Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Emergency " (tm).I do not see how any Government will be able to or even want to reduce the consumption of their populations sufficiently to make a difference.
We also have the loonies at the World Economic Forum with their "Great Reset(tm). They seem to have bought all the EU politicians, and quite a few others, too. The Great Reset
Interestingly, we also had the bank crisis of autumn 2019 (which was kept fairly quiet), which might, if your tinfoil hat is snug and at the right angle, be the reason for everything that has happened since. Consumption is down, energy usage is down, and the world economy is still functioning, sort of. The plate jugglers are actually doing a pretty good job of managing a gentle decline instead of bringing about catastrophic banking failure. The same emergency funding which saved the day in 2019 has just been reinstated as a normal, everyday, longterm facility, so that must mean everything is just fabulous in the system.
The Federal Reserve has toyed for years with opening something called a standing repo facility to prevent short-term rates markets from blowing up. Following a 2019 disruption and another early in the pandemic, the central bank finally took that step.
But obviously all the above is just conspiracy theories. Everything is actually exactly as explained by the Guardian and the BBC.
