Did the Star Wars Economy Crash After the Death Star Blew Up?


Star Wars

Star Wars villains sure love their Death Stars. Over the course of the film series, villains built three giant, orb-like annihilation machines that the good guys eventually destroyed. It makes one wonder why after building one Death Star, the baddies would commission two more in hopes of getting it right.

Building a Death Star is also expensive. Though not really touched on in the Star Wars film series, constructing a massive, planet-sized killing machine requires tons of raw materials, man hours, payments to contractors, insurance, and so much more. Just think of how long it takes for an actual building to go from breaking ground to opening. Now make that a billion times bigger and put it in space.

You know what’s probably more expensive than building a Death Star? Dealing with the aftermath of destroying one. Professor Zachary Feinstein, an economic specialist and Star Wars fan, sat down with Bloomberg’s Peter Coy to talk about the financial repercussions of killing Emperor Palpatine and destroying the second Death Star in Return of the Jedi. What they discovered could mean a world of hurt for the Resistance in this year’s The Last Jedi…and a financial meltdown in a galaxy far, far away.

It’s possible that Palpatine was smarter than he let on. After all, he was a politician, and probably had more economic expertise than Luke Skywalker. Could the newly formed First Order have an economic motivation to rule the galaxy with an iron fist? After the destruction of Starkiller Base (basically another Death Star), do they have the means to keep on hunting Finn and Rey? For the sake of the story, probably. That doesn’t mean that they won’t be stuck in financial constraints. Not even a Sith Lord could run from this much debt.
