The reason why recession around the world occurring around the globe prior to the wall street protest is because a majority of people are receiving funds in US dollars. Thus many people pay their employees in such dollars. Thanks to Bush II ( Cheny as well ) for starting an endless war and throwing tons of US dollars into the military spending ( not for troops but for services ), the US dollar fell. In fact we talk about balancing the dollar you would look at Bill Clinton era of politics.
If the US dollar falls everybody using the US dollar will also fall. That is basically every first world nation on the planet. Maybe not African nations that literally trade in resources or communist nations that control resources and have laws that violates peoples rights.
About Vaccines. These are not true vaccines. In fact the ingredients themselves is why they have possible effects. Sports people have canceled due to the virus, people have died from the shots. Medical doctors/ Physicians have called it quits or found places that would accept their employment. You got people dodging having to get a shot.
It is going to be another three or four years before a true vaccine is released.
People need to just avoid large groups or limit their time is specific settings. Like clubs, bars, and dining.
Go to work, go outside, mingle but be aware that variants of the virus is still a real thing. It is not a laughing matter. These vaccinations do not "Do the trick".
Beyond that China is controlling ports, via illegal activities and they pretended nothing was wrong. They knew, and tried to hide this fact from the world, when they should have been screaming from the top of the lungs ( we have a problem shutdown the trade ports, shut down air-travel ).
These mandates are limiting the workforce and the truckers themselves should feel horrified that anybody would attack their income source. I see no wrong with blowing up Parliament right now like something out of "Mars Attacks" because clearly these people do not care at all.
Right now where I live people are wearing gas masks ( I am not kidding you ). My neighbors are still afraid, and many have left for Florida or the Carolinas. We have houses, apartments, co-ops and dirt cheap prices. The population is a joke.
Nothing is special about this time at all. They just want us to be consumers.
