The “COVID economy”: The Plan

by Jon Rappoport

October 1, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

In the over 200 articles I’ve written on the fake COVID pandemic, I’ve covered the currency reset, social credit score, universal income tied to behavior control, socialism as the gateway into a technocratic Brave New World, smart cities, wall to wall real time surveillance, Internet of Things—among MANY other subjects.

Here, I want to focus on a near-time economic and social revolution happening before our eyes:

Through lockdowns and distancing, the massive destruction of small and medium-sized businesses. Millions of them.

The owners and workers will be forced to go where?

FROM those former businesses—which were hard to control through top-down methods—INTO the employment of major corporations, which will be picking up the economic slack and expanding.

That’s the pattern.

And when a person works for one of these behemoths, he is told: “Of course, you’ll either have to take the COVID vaccine or get tested every three days.”

We need to build a different kind of economy that is truly a resurrection of businesses of all kinds. To escape the trap.

Entrepreneurship is vital.

Here is an excerpt from an article I wrote in 2017:

In a future sea of darkness, the islands of light, toward which people desperately grope, are clusters of buildings occupied by mega-corporations and government agencies.

To achieve a measure of survival, people seek those islands and the jobs that come with them.

When you sign on and are accepted, you pledge a loyalty that knows no bounds, because there is no viable alternative. You cease worrying about the crimes your employer is committing, because you are safe, you are out of the darkness, and you want to stay there.

What would cause this future to come to pass? Many answers have been offered. I’ll add a factor to the list.

It concerns a method of problem-solving. Here is the premise: if a problem crops up, solve it by enlarging the scope of the “relevant factors.”

More precisely, ARTIFICIALLY enlarge the scope of the relevant factors. Go from a smaller problem to a bigger solution that encompasses more territory and control the bigger territory.

This is Elite Problem Solving.

In 1996, Hillary Clinton’s book, It Takes a Village, appeared. In it, she argued that a whole community must solve the problem of raising a child. Of course, this was pretentious nonsense. It runs parallel to the idea that no entrepreneur can prosper without infra-structure that is built with public money, and therefore the entrepreneur and his output should be the property of the State.

Starting with the individual child, Clinton offers a solution that encompasses a town or a community or even a city…or who knows…maybe a planet.

But the original problem isn’t solved (if it was a problem to begin with), and the solution is an artifact designed to regulate and control a larger environment. To put it another way, Clinton’s model makes it necessary to put everyone under the gun because a child may be a problem.

If the free market gives birth to 12 million companies, this creates the “problem” of uninspected potential crimes. Therefore, we have to put the world under the regulatory eye and nose of agencies, whose ultimate objective is to wipe out those enterprises, or weaken them to the point at which they will be absorbed in much larger corporations—until, finally, there are 400 mega-corporations that are responsible for 80% of all international trade and production.

Of course, when 400 corporations do constitute the productive engine of Earth, they will have bought off governments so they can do exactly as they like. They will partner with governments to share the spoils. Which was part of the idea in the first place.

Again, the method is: whatever the size of the original purported problem, make the solution bigger and more encompassing.

If one gun (fired by one person) killed one person, confiscate all guns everywhere.

Here is another example: if you foment and prepare and fund and supply a war between two major powers, in the aftermath you will solve the problem of reconstruction by welding those powers together as one Complex…in which case, you end up with larger unified organizations than when you started, and you control that unified whole.

In Europe, that whole is called the totalitarian European Union.

—-end of excerpt from 2017—

And our response to that elite, artificial method of “problem-solving”: go the other way. Build, in every way possible, small businesses. Entrepreneurship.

No one said it would be easy.

Neither is liberty. Neither is freedom.

Slavery is easy. Until the consequences hit home.

    “You never change things by fighting against the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.”

    “You didn’t build that.”, O’Bummer? Really? Watch us.

    “We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear….”

    Permits, Taxes, Regulations. This is what ends small business. Actually ends up ending everything.

    You want to stop this?… You’ll have to eliminate the parasites first and that will be a fight to the finish. Once they attach themselves to your productivity they don’t leave until you no longer are viable.

    Good article as usual, Jon!!! Linking as I always do @
    It is obvious that they want complete control of where we work, how are children are raised, where we will live and so forth. This is all part of the UN’s Agenda – Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: which I have linked as well in the sidebar of my site under Reviews, Articles and Videos. It is in downloadable form. I urge your readers to download it and read it!!!!!

    #1. Produce. Service. Off the land or a small car service or car dealer or iron forger, taylor, carpenter, accountant, tutor, teacher, hair dresser, welder, farmacist, painter, etc.

    #2. Local. Forget China, Koreea, whatever out of borders.

    #3. Learn and develop new skills, knowledge, etc.

    #4. Build communities. Free will associations, sindicates, stock exchanges.

    #5. Vote. Talk. Express your will. Choose. Fight. Resist.

      Let’s not forget:

      #6 Barter — it keeps the taxman out, but don’t call it barter, call it gifting one another; doing one another favours

      From Elsewhere, what you have pointed out is what I have done for the last twelve years and 25+ out of the last 30 years.

      I SAW OPPORTUNITY when fake “covid” almost shut down my business. I adjusted, shifted, and now my local business is thriving as it never has: +40% from the boom economy we had last year.

      GO FOR IT, EVERYONE. Do as Jon says: be an entrepreneur. If it is difficult where you live, sell up and move (real estate is booming especially in the suburbs and countryside as the “rich” city folks are fleeing the cities — especially in liberal states). There are many businesses which can be started with little to no money.

      My current business began 12+ years ago and we had nothing in our pockets, no savings, no retirement, no investments and a 30 hour a week job that was getting reduced hours weekly because of ObamaCare. We started the business with nothing but blood, sweat and tears. We home-schooled our child for 4 of those years (until she graduated) and she passed the GED with perfect scores in two tests (first ever in the region to do that). We remained below the poverty level for the first 9 years of this business and the only government handout we took was “free” health care.

      YOU CAN DO IT so long as you can do without and you work hard and look sharply around you, adjust, find something others want or need, and grow, cook, repair, etc… as much as you can to not rely on money for most of your necessities.

      I write these things so that you may be ENCOURAGED to forget the negativity of what is happening now and “seize the day” — that’s what the “elite” are doing.

      To quote George Bailey in “It’s A Wonderful Life” bank-run scene: “We’re panicking and Potter’s buying!”

      Good luck and best wishes. My prayers are with you all.

        Brilliant move on your part! What you have done is precisely how to outstrip the ctitical mass consciousness that’s seduced so many.
        And to quote another gem uttered by Jimmy Stewart in another film he starred in (‘Harvey’ as Elwood Dowds)

        “I’ve wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I’m happy to state I finally won out over it.”

  5. BDBinc says:

    The Banksters running the psyop covid already own the govts.
    Every central banking nation is part of the economic and political monopoly.
    The banksters can only control egoic minds (through fear & desire programming). We see a fear based reality, but imagine what love would look like?
    Our outer reality is the manifestation of our inner state, you want to change the outer you MUST first change the inner.

  6. JV says:

    You stretched the bounds there to take Hillary’s comments out of context. Has anyone been more demonized in our lifetimes?
    As a mom, I believe that it does “take a village” to raise a child. A village of aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, etc.
    Since the 50’s we’ve seen our families split up by convenient “transfers” (benefitting travel/oil industries). For many of us our loved ones are now many miles away, leaving children without the safety net of people who have their best interests at heart.
    When TSHTF, that’s what you need.

    • Opie Poik says:

      Hillary doesn’t care about children, and she doesn’t mean a village. She’s a totalitarian collectivist, and her vision of a village is a top-down controlled, techno-despotism. The Big Nurse as benevolent dictator. If she’s been demonized, wonderful. It DOES take a village to raise a child. I experienced that village, before feminism reached its current psychosis, amplified by government and the international bankster mafia. Hillary’s pretense isn’t that. She’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, not a loving matriarch. One doesn’t need to go out of one’s way to demonize her; her not-yet prosecuted history speaks loudly enough.

    • ak in vt says:

      Dear JV

      I beg to differ. Having grown up and left my family hundreds of miles away many years ago, my wife leaving them 4000 miles away, I can tell you the main reason I left was because of: MONEY. The second was: adventure.

      Corporations do NOT make anyone move — it is the choice of the individual employee whether he/she wishes to stay or take the offer/opportunity.

      I agree with you that it is sad that families are drift apart.

      Hillary Clinton is NOT interested in being a part of “the village” to raise any child (not even her own). Hillary Clinton wants to make you feel that it is your responsibility to raise the children in your neighbourhood, village, city, state, nation and the world — by taking your money (they call it taxes), and paying someone to redistribute it to someone local to give it to someone to provide things for the kids.

      I think I know what you mean and feel, but I do not believe that is what Hillary Clinton really means.

      • JV says:

        I do think it is what she really means. However, I would also say it is imperative on all of us to value all children. They are watching us for direction and the behavior of adults nowadays is beyond juvenile and degrading to our culture. Trump and the Kardashian’s come to mind. These are the role models we want our children to emulate?
        I won’t respond to Opie – he’s clearly a miosgynist – but I hope you realize that nearly everything you know about HRC has been engineered and fabricated by known ratf*ckers since the 70’s.

    I have been following your valuable covid investigations for weeks. Thank you so much for this.

    Have you ever written about the many deaths (presumably) caused by therapy experiments, like hydroxychloroquine overdosing?:

    Journalists / MD’s over here in Germany are starting to write about it more and more, like here:
    sorry, its in German…, but they are citing english sources:

    Horby et al., “Effect of Hydroxychloroquine in Hospitalized Patients with COVID-19: Preliminary results from a multi-centre, randomized, controlled trial”, medrxiv, July 15, 2020,
    “Therefore enrolment of participants to the hydroxychloroquine arm was closed on 5 June and the preliminary result for the primary outcome was made public. Investigators were advised that any patients currently taking hydroxychloroquine as part of the study should discontinue the treatment.”

    “Conclusions: In patients hospitalized with COVID-19, hydroxychloroquine was not associated with reductions in 28-day mortality but was associated with an increased length of hospital stay and increased risk of progressing to invasive mechanical ventilation or death.”

    “FDA News Release – Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: FDA Revokes Emergency Use Authorization for Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine”, June 15th 2020.:

    Jonathan Corum, Katherine J. Wu, Carl Zimmer, “Updated Coronavirus Drug and Treatment Tracker”, NYT, updated September 29, 2020,

    Richardson et al., “Presenting Characteristics, Comorbidities, and Outcomes Among 5700 Patients Hospitalized With COVID-19 in the New York City Area”, JAMA. Published online April 22, 2020:

  11. Chris says:

    A German MD, who is a Virus expert (and a “denier” from the beginning), Dr. Köhnlein, says they grotesquely overdosed Hydroxychloroquine, because of a mixup by the WHO-expert advising the studies. He confused it with a different drug with similar name, so patients received lethal doses.

  12. Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

    I beg to differ with Jon on his entrepreneur solution and the commenters who suggest barter and Bucky Fuller’s systemic replacement. We do not have to go that far right now. Right now, simply we simply collapse the myth of the virus using the new biology of Kaufman’s exosomes. It was easy for me way back in March. The problem I discovered was convincing others of the truth of non-existence of viruses. Jon’s done a good job on that as have others. Florida’s DeSantis cancelled all restrictions last week. We simply keep banging away at this nonsense. Even Trump’s testing kits will collapse after Nov. 3.

    Giant corporations have economies of scale that cannot be duplicated by entrereneurs. The American Civil Rights Act can stop Corporations from forcing masks and vaccines. We have all the tools we need… we just need to use them and spread knowledge of their use.

    I’m burned out from watching this destroy my situation over the last six months so will be posting here less. Thank you Jon for your many insights and I’ll certainly be checking in, though less frequently as I deal with my own problems that have now arisen due to extended furloughs from the big box music company I was with and other gigs I had. I thought this whole thing would have been over by last Easter like Trump first suggested… then I gave it two more weeks, then two more weeks, then two more weeks… then a month or two… and now we’re six months in… so I have to change strategy now. Thanks to all commenters who have been very helpful and insightful too.

    • RegretLeft says:

      It has gotten to be a community here. However, virtually attenuated; I would think most here are real and feel very much the limitations, the fraud even, of “virtual”.

      Still, this touches me: “burned out” – I am starting to hear it more and more in our communities.

      I hope you can stay strong and find new “strategies”; we will all need strength and strategies for what is up ahead. We will all be tested, I fear, in ways that will terrify us; the tyranny will be unfathomable.

      But “they” have not terrified us in the way that they have terrified billions – that really is the ratio. Try to find some strength in just that.

  13. Truth1 says:

    Warning! I am being serious in this post.Out is utterly destroyed. Intentionally! the politicians are acting like children by their bosses. Th goal is to make us so disenchanted with the state of the world that when the fke Aliens arrive to convince you that you should go along with their diabolical design for our world, that we will go along with it. Hey, most are going along with anything shoved down their throats already.
    2021 might be the year of the aliens. But don’t believe anything they say. All they do is lie.

  14. Ricardo Teles says:

    Undoubtedly. Only stupid people have yet to realize this, collective dementia has reached a level never seen before.

    The State, through a cry “humanitarian-sanitary concern”, closed billions of individuals for several months in their homes, allegedly to protect them from contagion, after a certain period the restrictive measures were relaxed and the official figures of deaths were released. reportedly related to the case as opposed to demonstrating a considerable increase had a shamelessly reported continuous drop.

    Cloth masks, although logically absolutely incapable of filtering a declared virus with a diameter of 120 nanometers, became mandatory, having been imposed imposingly on any and every citizen who left his residence and this was mostly accepted without any broad resistance.

    The phrase “stay home!” gave rise to the slogan “come be a voluntary worker”, an explicit and blatant scorn, although Cattle, always grazed and ideologically lobotomized, not only passively accepted everything that had been imposed on it, asking absolutely nothing, but immediately bought the induction that summed up the divergence, from the beginning obliterated and ridiculed, to an ideological-party issue, and despite this he still found the maximum the “new normal” determined, taking a masked selfie and desperately longing for a vaccine to be applied to him.

    The state of humanity is tragic. Intellectual bankruptcy, wide suggestibility, stunted critical sense and mental control over the absolute majority of individuals are simply unimaginable.


  15. Firestarter says:

    Because of the worldwide corona lockdown, 1.6 billion workers in the informal economy (the most vulnerable of the workforce) are in danger of losing their income. That is out of a worldwide total of 2 billion in the informal economy and a global workforce of 3.3 billion people.

    Worldwide, more than 436 million businesses are in deep trouble.
    232 million in wholesale and retail;
    111 million in manufacturing;
    51 million in accommodation and food services;
    42 million in real estate and other business activities.

  16. sean ryan says:

    The number of new small businesses forming yearly in the U.S. has dropped significantly, from an average of over 420,000/year, to just about 166,500/yr over the past 10 years.

    The number of publicly listed companies in the U.S. has dropped by over half, in just the past 20 years.

    I’ve owned my own businesses for over 30 years.
    And it’s never been more difficult, for many, than it is today.

    The same Cartel of largest shareholders similarly own the largest “competing” corporations, in most every single industry.
    A “David” may be able to defeat a “Goliath”, but corporate America has assumed the form of a Hydra.
    A “Goliath” with numerous heads keeping it alive.

    One may be able to defeat the data-stealing activities of Google (beware those new ideas/possible patents sent via email), but is then left to face-off against Amazon, Apple, Ebay, Etsy, Facebook, et al.

    Simply hosting a website, for example, to showcase your business, requires patronage of at least one of the Big Tech monsters (domain, plus hosting, plus perhaps maintenance, and likely a platform like Amazon or Ebay or Etsy to sell your wares), which are all largely owned by the same largest investment banks (those largely owned and controlled by that Elite).

    But sadly, neither Big Tech, nor Big Banking is all to blame.
    It’s the mindless masses supporting that Big Everything that need the most reform.

    It’s all too easy to head to Walmart to stack up on the latest crap du jour.
    Even easier to do the same at one’s computer, or tablet, or phone.

    I have studied topics like authoritarianism, tyranny, fascism, even slavery for a long time.
    And one commonality amongst all, is that those subjected to each failed to fight hard enough to protect their independence.
    They instead chose the easiest ways out.

    There’s a reason why public debt is growing so quickly.
    Debt has become one of the last remaining hopes of many small businesses, and their owners.

    Liquidity is facing severe challenges.
    Plus, the more wealth a few have & hoard, the less that more have (as wealth & capital have to exist in limited quantities in order to instill “value”).
    Thus the less total is spent in the marketplace.
    Meaning everyone is competing for fewer dollars, and the same fewer dollars.

    Yet even that debt serves to enslave that small business, and their owners, to the Elite.

    Moving past debt, even business revenue is taking a huge hit.
    With the virtual monopolies of Big Everything, prices of everything are quickly rising (due to the lack of real market competition).
    Yet income/revenue is largely stagnating.

    Keep in mind that the newly created, scam-oriented SBA small business loans are backed by some of the largest corporate investors.

    But Freedom is not easy.
    Neither is Liberty.
    Simply living an existence dependent on others, is not independence.

    The Boston Tea Party was more about the fight against big corporations whom had seized influence & control of the British Monarchy, to enact special interest legislation, to restrict Colonists from engaging in entrepreneurial activities.
    Read Cato’s Letters (not to be confused with the pseudo-Libertarian Cato Institute), for more info.

  17. Ram Dass says:

    Debating who Hillary is or isn’t is great fun but it’s a total distraction. The only thing that is important is forming a convention of the states to vote on a constitutional amendment to limit terms in all forms of governments to a maximum of 4 years and bans family members from holding the same office. And another to mandate a balanced federal budget. I think if a charismatic person could take this message to the masses we could convince both parties to add it to their platforms. Any means to accomplish this objective are acceptable. It would be a justified sacrifice of many souls if their loss lead to this heavy blow to the beast. If they keep us divided we will be looking at a single party rule in a few years. It’s just a question of which party wins the race.
