Introduction. Every crisis teaches its own lesson. From the multitude of economic and social phenomena, the crisis has a baleful force, both through the energies it engages and through the energies it consumes through manifestation. The crisis is the hardest lesson that forces us to be careful so that we can avoid it, overcome it. Crises can be “managed” to become bearable.
