Film Theory: Black Panther's Economic CRISIS!

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.

Late on this one, as I happent to be an economist. a lot of the premises of this argument are false, not just on economic terms but on the terms of political-economy generally. Wakanda's technologically advanced region is even properly depicted isolationist from it's actually poor regions. It is A. a Monarchy, thus representative of Corporate Representation, as B it is depicted as having fine Civil Liberty implications as well as Advanced Skilled Labor, necessarily meaning Unionist Representation. B. Isolation from it's own National region necessarily implies holding of agricultural protectionisms within it's sphere of influence, thus it is likely holding such systems within it's legitimate domain as per transport or road system,s in essence they enforce free trade through the country.  This is actually a Federalist Model Generally. Furthermore, holding such protectionisms within your influence in such ways is actually a mechanism of generating Equity Capital, in essence as they become protectionist you are claiming financially that in order for you to maintain their fair trade status this is worth a certain value to which you are entitled, as you invest it back into your own means. The Reality is New York operates very similarly. where their is "Poverty" this is a very subjective term in America, as many publicly traded, not Private Corporate, financial Standards are inflated in order to maintain various domestic values, again that protection, like the Housing Market for example, is a suburban phenomenon. But then as New York and other American Cities, possesses the largest equity rate, due to it's Industrial Banking Practices and Corporate Union Protections, in the country to provide serves and maintain Skilled Trade Union Standards. New York for example puts tons of money into preventitive health care, despite not having universal health care, puts money into water filtration, education, etc. as domestically, it's the most open market for Cultural sight seeing, like museums, and entertainment, like concerts, largely occurring in public for Free, the City pays for them. Then even the Reality is which everyone like to forget that Countries like Venezuela are actually organized on a very Nationally Protectionist Private Union Market "Bet" you might call it that the American economy will fail, and be more dependent upon their oil at some point, many countries are. And the reason theya re is often because the american domestic market is so organized around central Telecomunications - Marketability, which they do not engage in being much more interest in localized private small domestic markets. Ours is a Massive Global Corporate Economy which is publicly Traded and which effectively keeps them from playing Ball. And this common amongst overly Liberalized Financial Systems in Nationalistic Countries which bring about much Powerty in unIncorporated Municipal Disctricts, if they even Protect them at all. Countries like Mexico, Zimbawe, etc, it Common to have Telecommunications Entrepreneurs as their Richest people. We lack the ReSources. in terms of Oil, most American Equity in Oil lies in Exxon Mobile solely, and thus is not purely American Equity. All America Really has it our intellectual Values, Engineering, Skilled Trades, Programming is particularly signifant, because of it's capacity even innovate beyond Traditional Television Markets, in this regard; but then as these same Protectionist Policies keep our Inventors, Industrial Bankers, Free Labor Unions, from Trading Privately with these massive Resource Economies, thus justifying their "Bet" that our Marketability will Fail as it reaches Peak Consumerism. And then we cant pretend as though it did not almost 10 years ago, and this country is not experiencing a lot of that inflation because of this, which Trump is now causing more Protections around because that inflation is associated with an Equity Rate which gets Loaned to Entrepeneurs like himself. The alt Right for a long time was making the Argument that Trump Policies are Exactly like Wakanda, and there is some truth to this, except as he Represents much of the protectionist agricultral interest which loan him the money to be protectionist. So there is truth to this, so long as you assume Trump is the poor land that everyone knows about in Black Panther, as Wakanada is New York, and even the InCorporated Municipalities that Trump is attempting to find ways of Controlling. So, i thought id point this out, because Economics is a lot more complicated than Government Statistics which are brandished to show how Great "We" are. When the Reality is, lifestyles are much more subjective than this, especially in a Global Market Economy which increasingly promotes Austrian School Subjective Market Theories. And I'm even a Libertarian Personally, but as i am a Federalist first an formost, there too many "Libertarians" that Believe that Exises and imposts are Legal or worse Productive, often being Politically Interested and Economically Ignorant, which I don't mean negatively, necessarily. There is a Place for Subjective Market View Points, though it can not be Policy on the Terms of a Liberalized Nationalistic Market Economy.

Ok I’m only 3 minutes in, and I see a problem with this. Wakanda can’t suffer from this Paradox of Plenty, because they have a monopoly on vibranium. They can therefore restrict the flow of the metal into the market. It’s why even though diamonds are super common, they are also super expensive. Because there is a company with a monopoly on them, that has piles of the stuff locked in warehouses, and only lets a small supply go into circulation at a time.

I have to disagree. Sure they have a resource that no one else has, but don't forget: The whole reason that Wakanda is successful is because they stayed out of world economics. Their technological advancements happened simply because vibranium, not money. So even though their standing as a smart country in the MCU might be compromised by other countries being smarter (either through trade of vibranium or artificial vibranium), they will still stay a successful nation, as they were self dependent for so long.

The biggest problem I see with your argument near the end is you saying they have no backup. They do though. Any of their other insane advancements, such as for example...The cure for cancer!. This is something they could live off of for a very very long time since it's not only unique just to them, its something people will pay anything for and despite our best efforts to create an alternative we can't yet.

I’m sorry, but Wakanda doesn’t rely on exporting or selling their vibranium in any way and the one person who has ever managed to steal/smuggle vibranium is a well known fugitive who ended up dead. Wakanda uses this metal to create advanced TECHNOLOGY that betters the lives of its citizens. Also Wakanda is going to keep advancing in terms of technology at a much faster rate than the rest of the world, so in the end, they are not doomed for failure, the are on a track to advance at a faster rate than any other country with better tech to better the lives of their citizens.

I have a few issues with this theory. 1. Wakanda has been completely isolationist meaning things happening on the outside of the Wakanda system can’t effect it 2. We don’t know how exactly the government system works. There are multiple tribes and one of them didn’t even listen to the king so there seems to be some sort of federalizations 3. How you explained how power corrupts isn’t actually how it does corrupt usually. Sure some people go power mad/hungry but every time what really happens is the system (even a dictatorship) forces you to act evil and short sighted because that’s the only way to keep power and your head because power is the ability to get others to do your bidding, so if you can no longer can get people to do what you say you no longer have power even if you are king.

The Paradox of the Plenty doesn't apply here because Wakanda does not accept foreign aid and purposefully isolates itself from the world. Since it's not importing or exporting, globalization does not have as large an impact upon the country. Also, the movie doesn't give any other reason to suspect that Wakanda does not have any other natural resources or other markets.

Fibre cables carry better signals? Well, actually the signal its self is the exact same. In most case, a high frequency representing a 1 vs low frequency representing a 0, for electrical this is exactly the same except using electrical signals. Over lasers, the main benefit of laser of course is speed, as electricity suffers attenuation (this is why big power cables are usually high voltage, to allow the speed of the conducting electricity to reach its destination without using up all its energy) unfortunately for data its unfeasible to run high voltage cables into every switch, patch panels and pc, hence the lower voltage methods, old style copper eithernet could group cores of cables together, usually 24 set of cables, the theory being send the same message down all 24 of these cables and at least one should get there, the time problem was in collisions and the devices at either ends, anyway, long story short, fibre ends this issue because all you need is two fibre cores actually in use, another few for back. Up and providing the cable isn't cut through the middle you should receive the signal quicker (because light travels faster than electricity) and its more reliable that the packets being sent are full and without errors, anyway one long comment later, fibre cables and copper cables carry the same signals, they're just in different forms, (the more you know)
