In the following article,1 taken from the site, globalresearch.ca, dated May 1, 2020, Peter Koenig talks about the catastrophic economic consequences of the lockdown. The impact of shutting down the entire economy, especially for the populations of the poorest countries, has been devastating. People have been deprived of incomes and in many cases received no monetary compensation from their governments.

The decision for a global lockdown – literally for the collapse of the world economy – was already taken at the WEF (World Economic Forum) conference in Davos, 21 – 24 January, 2020. On January 30, WHO declared COVID-19 a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). At that time, there were only 150 COVID-19 cases outside of China. There was no reason to declare a pandemic. On March 11, Dr. Tedros, DG of WHO converted the PHEIC into a pandemic. This gave the green light for the start of implementing “The Plan”.
The pandemic was needed as a pretext to halt and collapse the world economy and destroy the underlying social fabric. This is not a coincidence. There were a number of preparatory events, all pointing in the direction of a worldwide monumental historic disaster. It started at least 10 years ago, probably considerably earlier, with the infamous 2010 Rockefeller Report, which painted the first phase of a monstrous plan, called the “Lock Step” scenario. Among the last preparatory moves for the “pandemic” was Event 201, held in NYC on 18 October, 2019.
The event was sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum, the club of the rich and powerful that meets every January in Davos, Switzerland. Participating were a number of pharmaceutical companies (vaccine interest groups) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s of the US and – of China.
One of the objectives of Event 201 was a computer simulation of a coronavirus pandemic. The simulated virus was called SARS-2-nCoV, and later, 2019-nCoV. The simulation results were disastrous, killing 65 million people in 18 months and plunging the stock market by more than 30% — causing untold unemployment and bankruptcies; precisely the scenario we are now living in the beginning stages.
The Lock Step scenario foresees a number of ghastly and disturbing events or components of The Plan, which will be implemented by the so-called Agenda ID2020, a Bill Gates creation, fully integrated into the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) with a target date for completion of 2030 (also called Agenda 2030, the hidden agenda unknown to most of the UN members) which is the same target date for completion of the Agenda ID2020.
Here are the key elements of what the world is living now, and what is to come if we don’t stop it, to demonstrate how this entirely criminal sham has been planned. Parts of the scenario are:
l A massive vaccination program, probably through compulsory vaccination. Bill Gates’ dream and brainchild is vaccinating the entire planet of 7 billion people.
l A massive population reduction and eugenics plan, in part through vaccination and other means (Bill Gates said “If we are doing a really good job vaccinating, we may reduce the world population by 10% to 15%”. See “Innovating to Zero!”, speech to the TED2010 annual conference, Long Beach, California, February 18, 2010).2 Bill Gates has been advocating for massive population reduction for many years. For 20 years the BMGF’s has undertaken extensive vaccination programs in Africa, India and other places around the world and there has been a record number of involuntary sterilizations of women between ages 14 and 49.
l An electronic ID for every person on the planet in the form of a nano-chip, possibly injected along with the mandatory vaccination. This nano-chip could be remotely uploaded with all personal data.
l Digitized money and no more cash.
l Universal rolling out of 5G to be followed by 6G.
There has been an almost universal (justified by NOTHING) quarantine and total lockdown of every business, small and big: restaurants, construction, tourism, little and big hardware stores, bakeries, air lines, transport with interrupted supply chains, factories, food processing, and it goes on and on.
In the Global North, up to 90% of business transactions emanate from small and medium sized enterprises (SME). Almost all of them are closed now. Two thirds or more of them may never open again. Employees and workers are laid off, or are reduced to part-time work, meaning part-time pay. These people must still sustain their families. Poverty and desperation sets in and has become rampant. There is no future in sight. Suicide rates will rise: see Greece in the 2008/ 2009 crisis. Ten years later we see the broken families, foreclosures and families forced from apartments because they could no longer pay their rents. Street begging has become normal except there is nobody left to spare a dime.
In Europe, at least one-third to maybe 50% or more of the workforce, depending on the country and structure of the labor force, is expected to be unemployed or will be reduced to part-time work. That is only the beginning. In the US, official unemployment figures are, as of this writing, in excess of 23 million and are expected, by predictions of the FED, Goldman Sachs and Bloomberg, to reach between 32% and 40% in the next quarter. Bankruptcies may spin out of control.
The Global South, the developing countries, present a grimmer story. Under normal circumstances, one-third to one-half of the economy is informal and not bound to any formal or legal organization. There are short-term daily or hourly workers who live from hand-to-mouth, without savings or safety nets, and in most cases without health coverage. They are left to the whims of the “market”, literally. Now the market has collapsed.
There is nothing left. No work, no income, no money to pay for food, rent, medication and the government has ordered the deprived poverty-stricken, to stay ‘home’ in lockdown and quarantine to protect themselves from an imposed virus that nobody sees, but the government and the media make sure you are aware and SCARED of.
Take a city like Lima, Peru. The country’s total population is about 30 million. Lima has about 11 million and some 3 to 4 million of these live on the margins or below, in shantytowns, or worse. They are daily or hourly laborers who live sometimes hours away from their workplaces. Now, there are no workplaces remaining. They have no money to pay for food, transportation or rent so landlords put them onto the streets. How can these people stay in confinement? How can they take care of themselves in quarantine and lockdown when there is no shelter and no food? They are desperately wanting to earn just enough money to survive another day and can’t. (Editor’s note: In the Philippines, for example, President Duterte has ordered soldiers to shoot people who come out of their homes in defiance of lockdown orders.)
“Lockdown-protection” is only for the rich. The poor starve with kids and families and quite possibly with the corona disease. They live within the circles of poverty and misery where there is no surplus. Nobody has anything; there simply is nothing. There is total deprivation caused by the economic standstill which has been forced upon the world, and especially the poor, by evil men and perhaps also evil women.
The New York Times (April 22, 2020) reported, ‘Instead of Coronavirus, the Hunger Will Kill Us.’ A Global Food Crisis Looms. The world has never faced a hunger emergency like this, experts say. It could double the number of people facing acute hunger to 265 million by the end of this year. Also in the New York Times:
“In Kibera, the largest slum in Nairobi, Kenya, residents already live in extreme poverty. Desperate to eat, a stampede was started during a recent giveaway of flour and cooking oil, leaving scores injured and two people dead.”
“In India, thousands of workers are lining up twice a day for bread and fried vegetables to keep hunger at bay.”
“Across Colombia, poor households are hanging red clothing and flags from their windows and balconies as a sign that they are hungry.”
This recalls the infamous Kissinger quote from the 1970s on famine,
“Who controls the food supply controls the people – the quote goes on saying, “Who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.”
Kissinger, like the Gates’ and the Rockefeller’s are “well meaning”: They have never made a secret of their desire to reduce the world population in a way reminiscent of eugenics, by “eradicating poverty”, for example, through vaccination starting in Africa. The coronavirus pandemic has brought poverty and famine to millions of people around the world. And there is no end in sight.
Under “normal” circumstances of global inequality, some 9 million people die each year from hunger and famine-related diseases. This figure may now shoot up exponentially. Maybe into the tens of millions or more.
The abject misery purposefully imposed upon mankind becomes ever more apparent. Aside from wiping out peoples’ and businesses’ assets, there is poverty and famine…
There is today no Nuremberg-type tribunal which is honest, ethical and powerful enough to hold the global elites accountable and bring them to justice.
We the people have to take the reigns in this ongoing paradigm shift. We the people have to get out of this atrocious lockdown.
