Sociologist David Harvey comments that capitalism never solves its problems, it merely moves them. Crippling debt and investment failure do not go away but simply choose new victims every few years. There is strong symbolic support behind this in the Electronic Herd analogy. The Herd never stays in one place for too long; it must keep moving to find new pastures, and it rarely fails to leave behind a desert.
