Japanification gone global - the serial over-use of stimulus as a proxy for a real economy, at the expense of future generations. All so that an aging society could pretend "nothing has changed" in their cannibalized lifetimes. Whereas in reality everything was commodified for quantity over quality. The corporate Disneyfication of everything, overseen by a generation of sociopathic Mad Men, and economists who know the cost of everything and the value of nothing.

Proving he is the chosen one, no question.
