I’m writing a story where about 1/6 of the world population is moved out of the world (essentially killed off). The ones killed mostly held positions of power (i.e. Politicians, doctors, lawyers, CEOs, famous athletes/celebrities, etc). I’m wondering what would happen to society if 1/6 of the population was gone? Economically, what would happen? What would daily life/poverty rates be, especially in cities? What societal things would we lose? What would we keep? What would we gain? Could there still be electricity? Thank you!
(also not sure if 1/6 is the proper number. I’m trying to create a society that isn’t in total anarchy/dystopia yet, but is on the brink of it- poverty rates high, no real law or order, but still using money for the most part. At least, it’s like this in the cities.)
