What a sad state of affairs: If we just had to knock out one member of the Axis of Evil, it should've been North Korea. With a presumed average IQ around 106, possibly depressed a few points from nutritional deficiencies, what prevents it from becoming a smaller version of South Korea a generation or two... Read More
++Addition++Pat Buchanan's recent article on the same subject is here. He raises the interesting question of how democratic capitalism will fare going forward against its most potent rival, autocratic capitalism.---At Parapundit, Randall Parker has recently been churning out several posts dealing with the continued rise of China.

Instead, the government has increased its martial presence, with armed soldiers on the steps of pagodas as the sun came up... Read More

Many alternate A lenders are teetering (an alt-A loan is one made to a person with good credit, but who lacks other qualifications for prime lending, like proof of income over some threshold). The stock market has been given the shakes as a result. So this doesn't come... Read More

The CPC's censorship may seem petty, but it illustrates an important distinction... Read More
Marketplace, almost anomalous at NPR in its balanced presentation, has an interesting report on the Sudanese economy. A few thousand blue helmets are being sent to Sudan as peacekeepers.
