Even if it is economy related, I don't think they can use that bullshit to explain their winner-take-all idea. If anything, it would be worse for the economy because if the winner is decided pretty early, there would be no incentive for teams to race. If teams don't race the "irrelevant" races and instead prepare next year's car at home, there would be fewer cars on the track = people can't watch their favorite teams and drivers/less exciting race = smaller turnout = ........


Sorry, but I haven't simmered down since it first broke news

Here is a very interesting video interview with Max Mosley on BBC. He has some points to make about the budget cap, and also let's loose the news that the 2-tier F1 Championship is a NO-GO.
