The 'Big Reset' draws on the 'Great Reset' thinking espoused by the World Economic Forum, and is optimistic about a strategy to get out of debt in ca 5 years, by cutting, by institutional redesign, by selective investment in green futures after maximizing the income from traditional resources, ie oil, gas, minerals.
