“As well as myself there was a young Norwegian couple who worked on an oil-rig, Paul, an engineer from Dublin whom I had taken to at once and a Swiss pot-holer, a rather surly fellow who was used to carrying out unbelievable dives on his own.”
L.K. Brass, The Apocalypse Deal

“was the only survivor of El Gouna and I had a distinct feeling that it hadn’t been an accident.”
L.K. Brass, The Apocalypse Deal

“rash of suicides caused by the economic breakdown and, according to him, the inconsiderate behaviour of the banks and building societies.”
L.K. Brass, The Apocalypse Deal

“Some social or economic upheavals always seem to come out of the blue, but we should nonetheless ask ourselves if we are right to regard them as the result of an impenetrable destiny.
The volume of futures contracts on financial instruments and raw materials has recently exceeded by a factor of twenty times the volume of the goods that they relate to. Just as forty years ago the arms race brought nuclear weapons that had the capacity to exterminate a population twenty times larger than that of the whole world, so today finance is ruled by processes and mechanisms that stand alone and are divorced from reality.
Like the man whose finger hovered just above the red button, the hedge fund managers or traders who follow their orders have no understanding of the effects of their actions on the world population and don’t know about its dramas, which are considered as minor inconveniences along the way.
Every time we make a purchase, buy a loaf or a glass of orange juice, we need to know that the flour and juice that we are paying for, even the coins we use to pay for it, have already been bought and sold twenty times before they end up in our hands.
Those who can afford to pay the amount they are asked for don’t worry about it: producers are oppressed by the fluctuations in the price of raw materials but nobody listens to them.
The size and range of transactions on the financial markets are increasing and their effects grow ever more violent and unpredictable. The brutal speed of the ‘flash crash’ was the first proof: the unchallenged development of the financial markets brings ever greater risks of instability. The analyses are indisputable.
We are literally sitting on a financial powder keg and we don’t know which unsuspecting trader will be the one to press the ‘red button’ as he seals his fateful deal; by which I mean the transaction, whether buying or selling, that will generate a new apocalypse and bring our economies to ruin.
Perhaps we will be the winners: while half the world’s population is drowning in overconsumption and the other half suffers the unfortunate consequences of this, we accept what happens and actively participate in it. In the best case scenario from ignorance, in the worst because it benefits a secret and unscrupulous oligarchy that is manipulating governments and economies. It’s a difficult thing to comment on, but history teaches us unfortunately that everything is worse that we imagine.
If no one has pressed the button, is this something to congratulate ourselves on?
Or is the fact that we have allowed the situation to reach this point a collective fault?
Praise or blame? Not for the first time humanity has to ask itself this question.”
John Rupert McGregor 1959 -2012
