Dumb Stuff

Dumb Stuff

Putin gets the Top Dumb Stuff Award for his decision to trade a booming economy, deep forex reserves, plus a shot at GDP parity with the US and the West – all just to invade Ukraine — a country poorer than Russia itself.

Xi gets the Core Leader Dumb Stuff Award for his decision to trade a booming economy and an excellent shot at having portions of his economy operate with near GDP parity to the West – in return for the fishing and mineral rights associated with a group of coral reefs he has turned into the South Sea Islands.

The U.S. does dumb stuff too, sometimes that cost Trillions. But we forget, our adversaries in this race of nations aren’t run by geniuses either, and sometimes their mistakes, like the ones mentioned above, that will number in the tens of Trillions – make our system look positively brilliant.
