Airframe Shock Testing, The Economy, and Politics

An intelligent observer would notice the similarity to what an aircraft engineer does in engineering an airframe and what happens in economics and politics.
When a desired shape is found for an airframe, engineers build a scale test frame and subject it to enormous stresses using giant hydraulic machines that test the bending and breaking limits of the wings and fuselage. This is done to establish load limits, both predicted and absolute (breaks), and establish where certain equipment should go. Due to the nature of aluminum and composites, this is different for each and every airframe design, but absolutely necessary to predict the outcome of stresses.

SO, similarly, the way the economy works and predicting how it (any economy) will function under stress is done in a similar fashion. Simulations are run against real world situations to see how much stress the economy can take giv

  • I've studied engineering and this is absolutely true. The Rothschild gang are the masters at deliberately oscillating economies. They've been engineering money for centuries. Shock testing is a universal and fundamental engineering technique to find out how a system works. For example, raise oil prices by $10 overnight and guage how everything reacts.

  • I enjoyed the analogy. Seriously, that is a motherfucking kickass way to describe this market meltdown.

    Also in regard to "shock testing" it has become clear to me that Pakistan's impressive ability to manufacture firearms has been the single most effective insurance for getting respect for its national sovereignty.

    I am sure the terrain has much to do with it as well, in essence, seems that Pakistan sent a pretty clear message about how it will regard border crossings.

    Respect More..
