The Fed and it's financial owners/dictators don't fear a recession, they fear the depression they have created.
If/when the people of today realize it's a depression, they won't be as compliant as they were in the 1929-1930s period.
They are better educated and will become intolerant 'head-hunters'.
Anyone they know or suspect as having contributed to this situation and their lies will be their targets.
Following Europe and following history, that may well be where it starts, and spreads quickly.
The phrase: 'Bad Boy, Bad Boy! You can run, but you can't hide.' will take on a new, stronger, expanded, and all encompassing meaning.
THAT is what they fear. (and justifiably so)

A prediction made in 1966 for the year 2022, movie made in 1973.....are we there, it is 2022 ?
Soylent Green is a 1973 American ecological dystopian thriller film, directed by Richard Fleischer, starring Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young and Edward G. Robinson in his final film role. Loosely based on the 1966 science fiction novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison, the film combines police procedural and science fiction genres, the investigation into the murder of a wealthy businessman and a dystopian future of dying oceans and year-round humidity, due to the greenhouse effect, resulting in pollution, poverty, overpopulation, euthanasia and depleted resources. In 1973, it won the Nebula Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and the Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film.
PLOT: By 2022, the cumulative effects of overpopulation, pollution and an apparent climate catastrophe have caused severe worldwide shortages of food, water and housing. In New York City alone, there are 40 million people, and only the city's elite can afford spacious apartments, clean water, and natural food. The homes of the elite are fortified, with private security and bodyguards for their tenants. Usually, they include concubines (who are referred to as "furniture" and serve the tenants as slaves). The poor live in squalor, haul water from communal spigots, and eat highly processed wafers: "Soylent Red," "Soylent Yellow," and the latest product, far more flavorful and nutritious, "Soylent Green."
Within the city live NYPD detective Robert Thorn and his aged friend Sol Roth, a brilliant former college professor and police analyst (referred to as a "Book"). Thorn is tasked with investigating the murder of the wealthy and influential William R. Simonson, a board member of the Soylent Corporation, which he suspects was an assassination. With the help of Simonson's concubine Shirl, his investigation leads to a priest that Simonson had visited shortly before his death. Because of the sanctity of the confessional, the nearly overcome priest can only hint at the contents of the confession before he is murdered. Thorn's immediate superiors tell him to end the investigation by the governor's order. Because he is concerned about losing his job to higher superiors if he quits the case and the fact that an unknown stalker is following him, he continues. He is soon attacked while working during a riot by the same assassin who killed Simonson, but the killer is crushed by the hydraulic shovel of a police crowd control vehicle.
In researching the case for Thorn, Roth brings two volumes of "Soylent Oceanographic Survey Report, 2015–2019" taken by Thorn from Simonson's apartment to the team of other Books at the Supreme Exchange. After analysis, the Books confirm that the oceanographic report reveals that the oceans are dying and can no longer produce the plankton from which "Soylent Green" is made. The reports also show that "Soylent Green" is being produced from the remains of the dead and the imprisoned, obtained from heavily guarded waste disposal plants outside the city. The Books further reveal that Simonson's murder was ordered by his fellow Soylent Corporation board members, who knew Simonson was increasingly troubled by the truth and feared he might disclose it to the public.
On hearing the truth, Roth is so shaken he decides to "return to the home of god (lucifer)" and seeks assisted suicide at a government clinic. Thorn rushes to stop him but arrives too late. Before dying, Roth whispers what he has learned to Thorn and, in his last living act, begs Thorn to find proof and take it to the Supreme Exchange, so they can take the information to the Council of Nations to take action.
Thorn boards a truck transporting the bodies from the euthanasia center to a waste disposal plant, where he witnesses human corpses being converted into Soylent Green. Horrified, Thorn is spotted and escapes. As he returns to the Supreme Exchange, he is ambushed by Soylent operative Fielding and his men. Finding refuge in the church where Simonson confessed, Thorn kills his attackers but is seriously wounded in a gun battle. As paramedics tend to Thorn, he urges Lt. Hatcher to spread the truth while shouting to the surrounding crowd,............ "Soylent Green is people!".
