10.18.21. The Great Resignation

Great Resignation

This week, we look at how vaccine mandates and other issues related to the coronavirus pandemic are fueling resignations and dissent among state employees, law enforcement, and other segments of the population. 

This week, concern erupted around a recent Financial Times report indicating that China had been revealed to have tested a new hypersonic weapon capable of traveling 21,000 miles per hour… but were the reports true? We look at what the Chinese Foreign Ministry had to say, as well as what U.S. Intelligence Officials say about why America is falling behind in its own hypersonics development. We also touch on the recent passing of Colin Powell and his legacy, and other items in the news.

However, the main focus this week has to do with resignations and revolts occurring around the United States, as state employees in California show fewer percentages of vaccinated than the general population, police forces push back against vaccine mandates, and the private sector is going on strike against work conditions. In light of all this, it’s no surprise that two professors are saying that we’re already entering a financial depression on par with the slump seen in 2008… we wade into all of this, and more on this week’s installment of Middle Theory.
