I think the two factors at play

dovetail nicely. They are not mutually exclusive, by any means. Think about it. If Austrian economic theory is objectively valid, and you are a globalist power monger, what course would you take? You would assess the economy according to the most reliable predictors and sell a fiction to the people to enslave them, namely Keynesian theory. So you can then act to bring the economy and the prosperity of the nation under the control of the elite while pretending to act in the nation's best interest. Diabolically simple really.
