Actually it works the other way around. First the economy crashes and then people revolt (and then, maybe). Just take a look at Venezuela.
Oh, I'm assuming a financial revolt, not political one. I don't think the US political system will face revolutionary angst by the citizens, it's 200 years more stable than Venezuela's current experiment.
I think the financial system, on the other hand.... When people realize they are working 10X more than 30 years ago, just to keep the same people who got bailed out in 2008 becoming wealthier and wealthier, that's when things will begin to change.
But you're right, financial depressions do tend to bring The People out. Who knows what the catalyst will be.
