    Wakanda's choke hold on Vibranium will be it's downfall! The country refuses to communicate and trade with the the rest of the world and history shows that is a BAD IDEA. How can T'Challa save his people from economic destruction? Well, loyal Theorists, that's what I'm here to solve.

    Hey! Venezuelan here. This made me cry for multiple reasons: 1.- The fact that someone is actually factually reporting on what happens to us and in some ways, this has been more through-rough than a lot of journalist.
    2.- Because it reminded me of exactly how bad this is, with no end on sight. :(
    Just to fact-check/expand on context: Venezuela did have a real, albeit imperfect democratic system from 58-98... The year we elected that asshole Hugo Chávez. And to be fair, plenty of people-both local and immigrants- profited: there was more social mobility and the opportunity to study, get good jobs, make a living, take care of your family, etc. Venezuela was much like the US, a migration magnet.
    And food scarcity started in 2007: milk was one of the first things to go. The thing is that because of the high oil prices is like they could keep cooking in spite of a gas leak, but eventually you rub out of gas.
    The thing about controlling of the 1 resource=control of the population is true. Is like how abusive partners will try to prevent their victims from having their own money or take away any income they generate so as to keep them subdued.
    The Venezuelan government is responsible for people not finding food, but they will SELL you boxes of government selected food for you. So, also Maslow’s pyramid: you keep people from being able to protest because they’re relying on that food box you sell them. And government officials are the ones who import that food and make money off of it.

    Ok, i really like how economics are the reason it shouldn't work. Basically economy is just a system. It work if half of the people dig a hole and half close it up again. Basiclly a dictatorship with the right leader is the most effective form of leadership. Since he can just order his people to build or produce something. As long as they have enough people working with renewable recources he can focus the rest of the workforce on research and development. So they don't even need to trade the vibranium.
    Fun part is, in a way, that could be the way to safe this world.

    "The economic calculation problem is a criticism of usingeconomic planning as a substitute for market-based allocation of the factors of production. It was first proposed by Ludwig von Mises in his 1920 article "Economic Calculation in theSocialist Commonwealth" and later expanded upon by Friedrich Hayek.".
    The state, by its own definition made of force, doesn't respond to incentives and is unable/unwilling to use resources in the best possible way. As Adam Smith discovered in his inquiry about the wealth of Nations, it's free commerce that creates prosperity, and that's the thing Wakanda lacks (they don't trade with the outside world)

    But they aren’t using the vibrianium for trade. It’s only on the black markets because people steal it. So the wealth comes from somewhere else and the economy will not colapse that easily and if it does they can fall back on the vibrianium until they figure out a better solution

    I think you are missing one key point in your theory. Tchalla doesn't put himself above the people. Sure he lives in a palace but he his seen multiple times casually strolling through the city, and note that he has NO body guards and NO ONE thinks its weird that their king is taking a casual stroll through downtown. They don't treat him like a king. They respect him enough to keep a respectful distance and treat him like a normal human being. Chances are good he grew up between lessons in the palace and hanging out in the streets.

    Hey Matthew thank you so much for talking about whats actually happening in my country, I didn't expect you to touch the topic on this video (or any of them, this was such a huge surprise) thanks to you millions of people will understand whats happening and will know about this, all what you said is true, my family cant afford normal food anymore, whe're lucky of eating some corn dough and nothing else (just water) idk how much weight Im going to keep losing with "Maduro's diet" but I'm glad I can still watch your videos (internet is cheaper than a normal food, I mean stuff like chicken with rice and a juice, that's for rich people now) hopefully this will end soon, please keep doing your videos, I will watch all of them, here or in game theorists :)

    Unless they discover a new source of adamantium nothing will replace vibranium. uru is even around less than adamantium so really vibranium is the only super steel and material option for new tech. It is like an age such as bronze stone iron..since it makes steel and titanium look like wood or stone compared to vibranium so there won't be another material like it in that big of a supply for quite a long time..imo but that is just a theory...u know the rest..

  • Evan Wood
    Evan Wood Month ago

    This theory makes little sense. Wakanda has a closed economy. The same issues don't apply to a closed economy. The nation isn't keeping itself afloat through exporting a valuable resource and then importing high quality goods and services from abroad like say Venezeula did. That's impossible. The nation is effectively an island cut off from the world. From an international trade standpoint Wakanda doesn't exist. Wakanda is entirely self sustaining.
    On that note Wakanda clearly isn't an extraction based economy like the various examples given. It's a fully developed industrial economy that happens to have a valuable resource in it. Saying that Wakanda is doomed for its vibranium is like saying that the United States is doomed because it has a lot of oil in it. It is absurd. Wakanda wouldn't be doomed if there was suddenly a vibranium substitute. They'd use it if it was cheaper for them and not if it wasn't. They have a well developed infrastructure and if they're producing everything themselves their economy is diverse just like nations also blessed with strong resources like the US.

  • Chris Lewis Media
    Chris Lewis Media Month ago

    Bear in mind that it's not merely the single resource it's the versatility of that resource, a versatility that has allowed Wakandans to develop a myriad of technologies and innovations unlike the world has ever seen that far outstrip even the most advanced technologies elsewhere, up to and including Tony Stark's. And it had been that technological innovations using Vibranium, a metal unique to Wakanda.
    I believe it is the versatility of Vibranium and is broad array of practical uses that stabilize Wakanda's economy. That and the absence of outside influences.

    I do think that even if an alternative for vibranium is invented, wakanda still can make a somewhat sustainable living by selling the technologies they have developed in the country. Besides that, I don’t think they even need the outside world to continue functioning as they likely have their on way of finding power and other basic necessities without other countries involvement as they didn’t seem to have a need to do any trading of natural resources in the first place. Also, I doubt tony stark would sell the vibranium alternative should he invent it. After all, it’s not like he sells iron man suit technology. But I do agree that should an vibranium alternative be created by someone else, wakanda may have to worry about other countries overpowering them or threatening them in exchange for technology.
