It certainly is economy related along with failure of law and order. Day before there was 9 hour road jam on Gurgoan border, so much so that 250 flights got affected at airport, as nobody was able to reach there on time. Reason of Road Jam was not usual Smog but Police barricades. Police was stopping people to move around. Plus many metro stations were shut down. This resulted in clousers of Markets, businesses, shops and factories.I do not think this is economy-related. These protests that are going on all over India use the Internet to organize. I think this is a law enforcement issue where they are deliberately stopping services to control gatherings.
Yes you are right Economy cannot thrive in atmosphere of Hatred and regular failure of Law and Order. Only Thugs and ruffians make money by rioting. It is duty of Law enforcement to keep check on such 'Thugs of India.' Situation in India is now similar to Pindari period of India during late Mughal/ Maratha era in 18th century, where 'Jiski Lathi uski Bhens' was a norm. Similar lawlessness now Prevails in India with only difference that now Pindaris have surfaced again and 'Thugs of India' are rulers of India.Where does a circle begin? This is a circle. Poor Economy -> Riots -> Poor Economy.
So that simply means Humans who are not investors but are productive or unproductive workers start rioting and start wars. Human minds should be kept busy to avoid such destructive behaviour and Social media was helping very well n keeping Unproductive people busy too like productive ones.The worldwide need for humans to increase productivity is decreasing
