An economics, investment, trading and policy blog with a focus on Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). We seek the truth, avoid the mainstream and are virulently anti-neoliberalism.
Interesting new series. Unfortunately the damage is done as far as discrediting Russia.
I'm seeing my friends tomorrow, the ones who thought I was crazy when I told them that Putin was innocent and so was Assad. They have swallowed the propaganda hook, line, and sinker. They will be for Hilary but I will be for Jill Stein, or even Trump. Trump is not the cold blooded murderer that Hilary is, I will tell them. Trump offers better rations with both China and Russia. Well, my friends will probably think he is dealing with the devil. They're nice liberals. I'm a George Galloway man myself.
Assad is hardly innocent. His dad was no shrinking violet either.
On the other hand, look at the other countries of the region. So-called democratic Israel is one of the most repressive. It's a tough area, with a lot of inter-group conflict, and therefore a tough area to govern. So strong governments generally arise led by a strong man sitting atop a power structure that is committed to preserving order, which under the circumstances means imposing order.
