System D is a slang phrase that comes from the French word débrouillards which is used to describe effective and motivated people! The phrase itself originates from French speaking Africa and the Caribbean and is used to refer to the Black Market!
Typically when you think of the Black Market, you would only think of transactions between criminal organizations, when in reality that is not always true! The Black Market is anyone who sells any type of product without the government knowing, whether it is a criminal buying a weapon, or a little girl selling lemonade outside of her house, both of these fall under System D.
The Black Market is growing at a rapid rate because there is very little job security around the world, and it’s only getting worse. Thus, people have started employing themselves by selling goods! This improvised international economy is also the second best in the world. How?
When the economy in Europe collapsed, countries with a higher percentage of their population involved in System D weren’t as affected! System D is growing faster than most countries GDP, and is worth as much as $10 TRILLION around the world!
