War or Revolution Every 75 Years.

Paul Buchheit puts it on a 75 year cycle.

When Charles Dickens wrote “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” to begin “A Tale of Two Cities,” he compared the years of the French Revolution to his own “present period.” Both were wracked with inequality. But he couldn’t have known that 75 years later inequality would cause the Great Depression. Or that 75 years after that, in our own present period, extreme inequality would return for a fourth time, to impact a much greater number of people. He probably didn’t know that the cycles of history seem to drag the developed world into desperate times about every 75 years, and then seek relief through war or revolution.

Compare to Strause-Howe (4th turning), who had a 80-90 year cycle.

None of them bring economics into the mix. What is the time it takes to build unstustainable debt? How does having a year of jubiliee every 50 years fix this?
