E=mc2 chapter 19 Crisis, whatever it means

Here it is the chapter 19 "Crisis, whatever it means".
It happens to hear that we are passing a time of economical crisis, which causes social emergency. These assertions are not completely true, to be very generous. It is amazing what one can find when exploring the official data from the "counter-part", the economical institutions.

Their data draws an opposite scenario from the mainstream media: a general increment of richness over the last 15 years; global weakth doubled from 2000; average wealth per adult at an historic high; subsequently widening of inequalities that doubled. If the economy is globally stable in terms of exchange of goods and GDP, & the global wealth increases twice while inequalities doubled, what are we talking about? The crisis is all but economical.
The question is who benefits from talking about the crisis in the sole economical terms. As Nietzsche once wrote,

«... it is sometimes harder to agree to a thing than to understand it ...»

Chapter 20 "The other in me drinks thee, or the grammar of desire" will be available within a couple of days at most.
