Wild Card's description 
The growing use of technologies in production is a significant trend, along with the related structural unemployment of a considerable part of the workforce. This can result in a wild card which could be characterised as a turn away from the official monetary economy towards commutation of production and consumption. Families can emancipate from sector of the official economy contributing to the creation of the GDP in certain socially segregated territories even today.
