5. And don't forget that Wall Street will be betting heavily on the crash and many will walk away with

more not less. During the last round, I read something and curse me for never filing sources, that said they engineer this type of thing. Boost stock prices so the little guy buys in, bet on the fall and crash the economy. A win/win for the billionaires.
There was an example recently were some of those sociopaths shut down a company rather than pay a raise. They felt they could do more with investing (or stashing overseas) than keeping the company open.
Vulture capitalism that is no longer connected to markets or the buying and selling of goods.
The one thing the billionaires still crave is the "royalty" label. So let's bundle them up, ship them to Europe, give 'em a tin crown and a piece of parchment with a title on it and let's be done with them.
