Events that move and shake the world economy:
- Major wars
- Government spending
- Energy trends
- Mass movements
- Natural disasters
- The news and media
The last item on the list is the only one most susceptible to artificial manipulation and distortion. Nearly every other element represents an honest representation of market demands, with the exception of mass movements, as they too can be susceptible to manipulation.
Coveted by governments around the world, mankind has fought countless battles over precious resources, and done much to dominate as many of them as possible.
