Hey! Venezuelan here. This made me cry for multiple reasons: 1.- The fact that someone is actually factually reporting on what happens to us and in some ways, this has been more through-rough than a lot of journalist.
2.- Because it reminded me of exactly how bad this is, with no end on sight. :(
Just to fact-check/expand on context: Venezuela did have a real, albeit imperfect democratic system from 58-98... The year we elected that asshole Hugo Chávez. And to be fair, plenty of people-both local and immigrants- profited: there was more social mobility and the opportunity to study, get good jobs, make a living, take care of your family, etc. Venezuela was much like the US, a migration magnet.
And food scarcity started in 2007: milk was one of the first things to go. The thing is that because of the high oil prices is like they could keep cooking in spite of a gas leak, but eventually you rub out of gas.
The thing about controlling of the 1 resource=control of the population is true. Is like how abusive partners will try to prevent their victims from having their own money or take away any income they generate so as to keep them subdued.
The Venezuelan government is responsible for people not finding food, but they will SELL you boxes of government selected food for you. So, also Maslow’s pyramid: you keep people from being able to protest because they’re relying on that food box you sell them. And government officials are the ones who import that food and make money off of it.

I remember in world geography we were discussing currency, and I made a comment on how the Venezuelan currency is virtually worthless. Thus it prompted a hour discussion about the economy, and we read articles discussing how people got food. It is so bad that they ate the zoo animals and any other animal they could find.

The command and control economies in this video all sell the primary resource to other nations. Wakanda does not. The vibranium sold on the black market either is stolen from Wakanda or is a collection of vibranium that already exists outside Wakanda. While the ruling class controls this most precious resource in Wakanda, the nation is self contained. There'd probably be lots of poverty if the ruler wasn't a kindhearted marvel hero, but food and other necessities are not bought with vibranium money. I got that Wakanda completely isolated itself from the rest of the world when I watched the movie, so its economy should be completely unaffected by the market value of vibranium.

I do like this theory and the economics back it up. But I still have a problem with how the country got to be so technologically advanced in the first place. Vibranium is an amazing metal but it would take centuries to even have the technology to work with it. Maybe in the modern age they could tap into untold uses but how did they get there while being isolationist. And if they were so isolationist their technology would probably be even more alien than it was.

Bad theory man. Wakanda is a self sufficient country. They don't need to sell the vibranium. They grow their own crops and create their own devices with it.

Wakanda is an example for our real world, = HOW IT COULD BE, if some people arent greedy and think also about poor people, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT A WHOLE COUNTRY BENEFITS; IN WAKANDA NO ONE IS GREEDY; THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR PEOPLE; IN OUR WORLD; IN SAUDI ARABIA AND OTHER COUNTRIES; THEY DONT CARE FOR THEIR PEOPLE; THEYPROOF IT WITH THAT; PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING; HAVE NO MONEY; HOW MUCH EVIDENCE U NEED; WAKANDA IS A FICTIONAL EXAMPLE FROM STAN LEE AND THE PRODUCERS; HOW IT SHOULD BE; THAT EVERY1 BENEFITS FROM NATURAL RESOURCES; THAT NO ONE SUFFERS HUNGER AND STUFF; U DONT GET PEOPLE WHAT THEY MEAN WITH WAKANDA;; IT IS AT THE SAME TIME A REPROACH TO COUNTRIES ON OUR WORLD; THAT HAVE RESOURCES LIKE WAKANDA BUT NOT THE HEART LIKE WAKANDA; WHO THINKS ABOUT THEIR OWN PEOPLE MORE AS THEY DO OVER MONEY; A FEW PEOPLE BENEFIT IN OUR WORLD FROM RESOURCES AND THEY DONT WANT TO SHARE IT WITH THE FOLK;; = THAT IS OUR WORLD ; SADLY :/

Few issues
1) Well, there's no replacement or equal for vibranium.
2) Wakanda can still thrive through tourism and stop relying on vibranium. People would love to visit the most prosperous place on Earth for business, education or just some vacays.

Um... Wakanda is said in the movie, alone, to be accepting no help from outsiders. That's because Vibranium is a cure all. It can be made into anything. Wakanda's economy would be fine as they do not take part in international trade. They were isolationist, and always will be on an economic stand point. The Wakandan economy was self-sustaining.

Hey hey.
So I have all of one disagreement with this theory. And that is, the issue that Wakanda doesn't sell their vibranium. They are a closed economic system.
IF Wakanda sold, then you'd be totally 100% right in every regard and thensome. However, as we see in the movie, vibranium is the backbone of their technology, all of which they keep to themselves and don't let out of the country. More to point, we don't actually see what kind of economy Wakanda uses. Are they a monetary economy? A welfare economy? A Moral Economy (a horrifying dark age/early medieval system when you think about it that is based entirely on maintaining people's social station by changing the cost of things based on their present social status)? A barter economy? Etc.
Although several of your theories apply across the board, the way they interact changes based on the core principles of what system they are using. Your theory assumes a monetary capitalist style of economy, two things which we can actually reasonably be certain that Wakanda is not.
I kind of want to keep ranting about this for a while and explaining my point, but I'm pretty sure these messages have a word limit which I would undoubtedly hit, so I'm going to stop here having made my point and provided at least enough information to look into the points further if desired.
Otherwise, fantastic video, well researched and I love your work, keep it up. :)

You do realize that in the comic when Dr Doom got super powered he rendered all vibranium got depowered Captain America was concerned and asked Black Panther if his country would be ok. He said we will be fine we have invested in the worlds debt so the country literally has trillions of dollars when total available world currency is about 72 trillion so I think Wakanda will be ok.

Major flaw with this. It depends on the idea of a currency based economy, like capitalism. There was no indication that Wakanda has a currency based economy. At no point does anyone in the movie by or sell anything in country. Nor does any economic term associated with currency come up regarding internal affairs. My first assumption was a non currency based socialist economy.

Furthermore, Wakanda has never sold vibranium in the MCU. They specifically try to keep it out of the hands of the rest of the world. Vibranium literally has nothing to do with their economy.

there's another bleeding plot hole in this premise isolated societies DON;T prosper the stagnate, sure the are wealth but it doesn't make you improve the reason the western world is advanced is because you can communicate with other parts of in an instant!!! and this harm from isolation is a historical fact ever time a society divides up and one side is cut off not only do the not gain new advancements often the lose ones the used to have so Wakanada might not even able to make SPEARS.

If Wakanda existed for that long in isolation, wouldn't an outside alternative not make a bit of difference? Like, if they continued to live in isolation...who cares? If there is no outside trade, their market doesn't seem to rely on whether someone has a better alternative? Wouldn't they just continue to progress in isolation?

You forgot a couple of things Mat . First of all Vibranium isnt Wakanda’s only major resource . They are the only country with it ( someone else in the comments pointed this out) . They have other major resource like diamonds etc . You cant compare Wakanda to Saudi Arabia and other countries with valuable resources because 1) they dont export their vibranium so they dont make money of it and 2) Vibranium isnt just some strong metal . It is what their civilization was built upon . As Klau said ‘Its not just the metal . They sew it into their clothes . It powers their city , their tech , their weapons.’ They have the most valuable resource on earth and they are the only ones with it . Not only that but they can use that resource for basically anything other than food . Now tell me how is Wakanda going through an economic crisis ?
