Re: Italy, Coronovirus and immigrants from Africa?

Neverfail, I think they have a significant reduction in the number of Africans seeking to migrate to ltaly or elsewhere in Europe. The fear of contracting Coronavirus from its epicenters of Italy and Spain is largely responsible for the reduction. African migrants are no doubt poor and seek employm...

Re: my pessimism about China

Doc, Western leftists like Sertorio and Neverfail appear to believe whatever the CCP says and hate to think that the CCP, whose ideology they sympathize with, is coming apart at its seams. You can abstain from tagging me a "Western leftist"; even though Sertorio might regard it as a compliment. Per...

Re: The CCP is literally coming apart at its political seams

I see no existential evidence that China is coming apart at the seams. Cool off. Doc! Do you remember us discussing hatred in foreign relations, and what I said about the US?...It really seems that there is a major source of hatred in the world, and you know where it lays... It is only China's IMAG...

Does anyone ever ask if we should raise taxes?
The time to raise taxes is when the economy is booming; not now when plunging into recession.

Does anyone ever ask if maybe there is something wrong with our monetary system? Or perhaps there is something out of kilter with our system of division of labor?

Re: Oil War and the US

Hopefully in a few years time oil will not even be considered anymore as a source of energy... Vain hope! The trouble with cheap oil is that it encourages more useage of it. Cost versus benefit all of the time. You keep forgetting the cost of the negative externalities of the oil industry. Such as?...

I hope they do work in order to save lives - and I don;t care about the politics. The failure of those dud test kits however does not l...

Re: The Coronavirus and the EU

What I am suggesting is for those southern countries to pool their means to solve their common problems, without waiting for any assistance from the northern countries. For instance, by issuing Southern European Bonds exclusively for their own benefit. Of course these southern countries would then ...
