The collapse of the world economy had started in China when Xi Jinping had suddenly passed away. Rumors that he had been assassinated by the CIA and the party of Davos paralyzed the world economy. Populist tensions which had been building for a decade came to a boiling point. The citizens – facilitated by tech companies –demanding to get rid of the elite hit the streets. “Kill the elites! In data we trust!” shouted an anxious crowd in front of the Berlaymont commission headquarters in Brussels. The protesters had set the building on fire. They called it the European Spring. Some thought euro-skeptics had torched the building from the inside. The disaster forced German EU commission president Manfred Weber to resign.
