Just enough underbrush

Sheviit introduces into the political/economic system regular stresses and tests that function like controlled burns in the forest, 
"clearing away just enough underbrush to make you invulnerable to a larger fire." (The Age of the Unthinkable, Joshua Cooper Ramo, 2009, page 181) 
The cycles of sheviit and yovel address the slow variables in the eco-system enabling them to refresh without having to contend with the action of the fast variables.
