Following an understanding reached with Ottoman representatives, Britain drew up an emasculated version of Article 16 to replace the original, a clause that retained the call for reforms, but omitted any reference to the Russian occupation, thereby dispensing with the principal guarantee of their implementation. Despite an ambiguous reference to great power supervision, the clause failed to offset the removal of the Russian guarantee with any tangible equivalent, thus leaving the timing and fate of the reforms to the discretion of the Sublime Porte.  :38–39 The clause was readily adopted as Article 61 of the Treaty of Berlin on the last day of the Congress, to the deep disappointment of the Armenian delegation.
Great Depression (GD) of 1929 was definitely a precursor for World disorder as it entailed rise of fascist forces and widespread economic inequalities among Western European nations. The Great Depression caused industrial unrest in the form of low wages, poor demand and high unemployment which helped totalitarian regimes to pursue their imperialistic motives in the light of weakening of Super Powers of pre- and post World War-I times especially Britain, France, Russia etc.
The hyper-nationalism of fascist regimes stimulated new groupings, as a repeat of World War-I mistakes, in the form of axis powers which thought to redeem their prestige in the World order. The GD helped in the consolidation of anti-democratic forces in their national settings, as hapless citizens were finding it tough to bear the brunt of high prices, unemployment and low wages.
The one of devastating fallout of GD was over-protectionism which severely harmed the growth potential of war-torn nations. The strong dependence over US, post World War -I scenario, made the recovery post GD quite difficult for the participants of World War-I countries. This helped fascist regimes in going for self-dependence, causing in-house technological advancement and resource grabbing spree. This led to clash of interests among the over-zealous and over-ambitious nations (Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan etc), pushed the World towards another War.
