Great Reset

The term “Great Reset” came into popular use after the 2008 financial crisis and is similar to the economic terms “Great Depression” and “Great Recession.” Richard Florida popularized the term in a February 2009 interview with The Atlantic magazine titled “The Great Reset” and in his 2010 book, The Great Reset: How New Ways of Living and Working Drive Post-Crash Prosperity,

While Florida referred to a general economic and cultural “reset” after 2008, others have viewed the “Great Reset” as a time in the near future when the U.S. dollar becomes worthless and the currency needs a “reset.”

The coronavirus (COVD-19) pandemic in 2019-20 affected the finances of many people. On June 3, 2020, the World Economic Forum announced its plans for “The Great Reset.” There were many critics. “The Great Reset agenda being pushed by the World Economic Forum is nothing more than a candy coated way of saying ‘New World Order’” was posted on Twitter by 21:31 Radio on June 14, 2020.

Related “Great Reset” sayings include “Not-So-Great Reset” and “The Great Resist. They will own nobody and they will be unhappy.’

The World Economic Forum (WEF), based in Cologny, Geneva Canton, Switzerland, is an international NGO, founded in 1971. The WEF’s mission is cited as “committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas”.

The WEF hosts an annual meeting at the end of January in Davos, a mountain resort in Graubünden, in the eastern Alps region of Switzerland. The meeting brings together some 3,000 business leaders, international political leaders, economists, celebrities and journalists for up to five days to discuss global issues, across 500 public and private sessions.

Urban theorist Richard Florida explains why recession is the mother of invention.

By Conor Clarke
America’s shrinking economy has shortened everyone’s time horizons. When the Obama administration announced its plans for an $800 billion dollar stimulus package, legislators were on board with spending 75 percent of the money over the next 18 months. But the portions of the bill that are more forward-looking—like long-term investments in education and infrastructure—have proven more controversial. Who can think about laying down train tracks over the next decade when millions more jobs could be derailed by the middle of next year?

Urban theorist Richard Florida, for one, takes the longer view.

The Great Reset is our attempt to describe the world as it emerges from the fog of the current crisis. Specifically, we look at where and what the nature of global demand will be like. Demand is king, not supply.

Niall Fergusons describes Chimerica as the driving engine of the worlds economy. One half did the spending, one half did the saving. In all fairness, it wasnt just the US that did the spending, so did the UK, Spain and other countries now left with burst housing bubbles. Likewise, it wasnt just China that saved and accumulated huge amounts of US dollars to lend back to the USA to further fuel the cycle of Chimerica. So did Japan, Korea, Germany and the oil producing Middle East countries. But Fergusons Chimerica captured the essence of the imbalances nicely.

As these imbalances unwind, the way they unwind will send the world down several possible futures which weve termed Wounded Beast, Chasm and Abyss. Each possible future is a mixture of resource volatility, demand and political (un)stability that demands different responses and preparations. This is not a prediction of how the world will go of course, but rather something to ask yourself or your company how should I ready myself for a post-Chimerica world?

In my world, inflation is the beast that knocks at our door and if not checked will lead to a currency meltdown. We can call it, ” The Great Reset’, whereby a new currency is introduced and you get one new dollar, for ten of the old. I am only speaking of savings and other forms of investment might be in the wind as they are not part of the federal reserve banking institution.

The Great Reset
Since the Status Quo is unsustainable, there will be a Great Reset. The timing and nature of that Reset is up to us.

Yesterday I laid out why the Status Quo is financially unsustainable in The Promises That Cannot Be Kept. The unavoidable consequence of that is the the nation will experience a Great Reset in which the promises of the Savior State are relinquished, either voluntarily or involuntarily.

As I discussed in July 4, 2011: The Cycle of Dependency and the Atrophy of Self-Reliance, our reliance on the Savior State has sapped our will and confidence, and hollowed out communities that have become dependent on the Savior State and its quasi-private partners, the corporate cartels of banking, defense, healthcare and so on.

The Great Reset will thus be a great shock to everyone who has grown dependent on Big Government and global Corporate America.

An unprecedented array of interconnected trends are converging that will force a Reset not just in the economy but in the American society and culture.

Marc Faber - The “Great (Monetary) Reset” Will Destroy Cash
With gold trading strong above $1,600, today King World News interviewed one of the greats, Dr. Marc Faber, Editor and Publisher of the Gloom Boom Doom report.  When asked if there will soon be a deal on the debt ceiling in the US Faber stated, “Yes, I’m sure there will be an agreement, but it doesn’t solve the fundamental problem of excessive debt and of further, very substantial deficits. 
(...)
When asked about the eventual monetary reset he expects and how he sees that playing out Faber had this to say, “Well when the reset comes it will be say a hundred dollar bill will be exchanged for a one dollar bill or something like this.  Before we have the Great Reset, the government they will increase the war effort under whatever excuse that will be but I think that is the likely course of action...The wealth destruction will be interesting because...the people that suffer the most before the reset happens are actually the cash holders.”

That aside, the continued success of this sector isn’t inconsistent with the economy, as this is not a normal “demand slackening,” general sort of slowdown, but rather an inchoate and yet-to-be-determined reorienting of how economic and social life are organized. Richard Florida calls these episodes “Great Resets,” and posits that this is only the third such reset since the 1870’s. During the Great Depression, for example, Prof. Florida cites a wide variety of innovations and huge leaps forward in productivity that rolled out in the wake of the Roaring Twenties, as the general population retrenched into caution and often grinding poverty.

This all plays into the Great Reset by the World Economic Forum.  Slides right into the UN Agenda 20/30.  The Scamdemic, the riots, defunding of Police and next no sovereignty, no governments just the NWO to take care of us.  Reassuring? Hang on, 2020 is only going to get worse.
