On the economy: Coincidences? I wonder

There have always been conspiracy theories concerning government power, financial institutions, etc. Such names as the Trilateral Commission, the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation come to mind. They all seemed far-fetched until recently.

How do oil prices go to more than $140 a barrel in a year, then decline to below $40 in less than six months? How can an economy be relatively stable for decades and then be on a brink of disaster within one month? How can a person who was relatively unknown a year ago become president of the U.S., while collecting record campaign donations during that year?

I am not suggesting any conspiracy. I am just asking how all this happens in such a short period of time.
