Wow, that is an interesting thing to think about. A "strange" attractor is one that is non-deterministic, so behavior is effected by butterfly effects, etc. Also, think black swans...

Various historians & political scientists have been very worried that rising income inequality may have reached a tipping point of no return, &, who knows? It could be.

I heard a really troubling report just yesterday, to the effect that student debt is now so huge that some people are unable to pay it off in their lifetimes. Implication: Those people will be unable to help their own children pay for college! And, there, we've created a permanent underclass not that different from how redlining has screwed African Americans multi-generationally.

So much, hmmm?

But, let's see with the incoming Biden Admin if we do get a non-linear attractor so we can bounce away from dire deterministic predictions.

I'm all for it.
