A type of combination meal from a chinese Take-away aimed at lowering the amount you spend by reducing the quality of benefits you receive and service provided to you! In other words a doggy-bag of all the shitty leftovers that by law must never be handed to you but thrown on the floor for you to pick up.

(ECONOMICS) when a government has to restructure spending by massively cutting social programs, development programs, and subsidies on basic necessities. Often accompanied by taxes increases, especially on lower incomes (since the poor cannot escape tax hikes).
Usually we use the term "austerity program" when the government in question has to backtrack on its ideological commitments. An example of this is France, after June 1982. The Socialist government of Mitterrand had just implemented a raft of major new social welfare programs, and was promptly forced to cut everything back when the deficit ballooned.

A private central bank creates fake money by lending it to your government at interest which in turn forces slaves to pay their taxes with it.

Laws are enforced to protect this fraud.

This fake money is entirely synthetic and manipulable.

Excuses initiate new taxes that are left in place forever. Taxes justify violating privacy and other rights and establish clear slave master relations enforced with violence.

Some is shared with slaves to create dependency, enlist support, and divert attacks toward the dependent instead of the bankers.

Fake money lets them rob slaves of their savings and wages via a hidden tax called inflation which simultaneously enriches the wealthiest.

Fake money makes interest rates manipulable. Bankers can thus give low interest rate loans to their co-criminals and impose high interest rates on their competitors and the poor.

Government budgets become synthetic with no immediate real world limits. Every form of power gets cheap for the central banker and the entire society is corrupted because the honest relationship between real money and work is removed.

Even the collapse is gamed.

Owned politicians tell slaves that we have all put ourselves into a terrible mess. Now we must suffer together as we pay our bills.

Grandma gets less money than she needs to survive. Hospitals enter crisis. Weak currency and growing fraud lay off slaves who are cheated out of the funds they paid into.

These are called Austerity Measures.

Finally it collapses.
Banker-owned politician, "We're all in this together. Austerity measures are a necessary bitter medicine we'll all have to take to get out of this mess."

Greek grandmother, "I haven't eaten since breakfast yesterday."

Banker, "Don't complain lady. My 100 foot yacht might not be built before I have to flee the country."
