Re: Protectionism, does it work?

You are ideologically blinkered, Neverfail. Sorry cass but I have long had the impression that it is YOU, not I, who is the ideologically fixated one among us. As for me I do not see myself as having any fixed ideological commitment - unless you consider freethinking to be "ideology". When will you...

Re: who would BARRACK for Obama now?

(Barack has one r, by the way. I'll have to insist you spell our American names properly!) I stand corrected Steve.

The Russian state is merely a vehicle for their enrichment and their politics are only a facade to secure their revenue. Where is the reliable data supporting this idea of yours?... Do you deny that ...
