Israel comes to the rescue of upbeat economists

I don't think it's a coincidence that there is talk of Israel bombing Iran toward the end of September, since this is approximately when LaRouche expects the global financial system to vaporize, and mainstream economists have been insinuating that the economy has bottomed out and will recover any time now. If Israel attacks Iran, and starts a world war, the mainstream economists will claim that the subsequent economic collapse was due to the war, when in fact it would have happened anyway. But my question is why they would care about their reputations at that point. Perhaps they expect something to remain of civilization, and that they will be required to help manipulate the peasantry.
