Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for the insight. I was not aware that silly season had started already!

Though to be honest it is rather scary that such policies are presented as a 'solution' to a general public by the politicans. It seems that its not just the political elite that is detached from reality but a large chunck of the electorate. That has very serious implications for actions in the future.

It looks like the USA is going to be stuck with a 19th century Hobbseian view of the world for a while longer.

I thought a Hobbesian view was 17th century.

When the capital development of a country becomes a by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done. — John M. Keynes
