2022: The Year That Imploded Bigly
The comments below are an edited and abridged synopsis of an article by David Haggith
“This was the year where it seemed everything imploded. For the economy, it started with two quarters of receding GDP that everyone refused to call a recession. Whether you stand with the crowd on that or not, it was certainly not a good change and was certainly a collapse of the economy toward a smaller state based on production.But that was just where it all began. What follows is an amazing overview of a world in a state of collapse.”
Up for discussion: The stock market’s north-pole polar-bear plunge; no Christmas bond bons for you; the snow-job labour implosion; the great crypto collapse; don’t eat the pretty red berries on prickly holly hedge rows; the housing-bubble bust; money, of course, is imploding by design; the global implosion of goods and services; speaking of those droughts; a year of implosions would not be complete with a few Tweety-sized celebrity bangs to boot; and British novas and falling stars.
