How Small Events Can Cascade into Contagions

Spread the love


COMMENT: Dear Martin Armstrong,

This very unusual video about dominoes is 2½ minute and shows how a small domino can knock over big ones. I remember you writing about a small Austrian bank, Creditanstalt, that in 1931 was the first sign of the economic depression. Maybe these dominoes can illustrate what happened.

I hope you are fine and thank you for this blog


REPLY: This is a great example of how a small event can set off a contagion. This is exactly how it works within the global economy.
