"Between the late 1970s and the early 1990s, government revenue surged from under 25 per cent of GDP to over 35 per cent, but client states are expensive to maintain, and government favours fuel demand for more government favours. So the money was never enough, and the shortfall was made up by borrowing and printing more of it."
What I admire about the anti-capitalist left is their ability to present their ideas as somehow "unorthodox" and "anti-mainstream", when they are clearly nothing of the sort. Go to any high street bookstore, and you will find that the politics section consists of little else but the tomes of Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, Russell Brand, Owen Jones, Ha-Joon Chang, George Monbiot and the other usual suspects.

"Other countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, are still trying to catch up. But they are left behind because of too little—not too much—trade... If there were more trade, poor countries would likely be much wealthier."
Wolfgang Fengler shares how his views evolved believing that the solution to global poverty lay in taking resources away from the rich and redistributing them to the poor.

Excited about the just ended International Students For Liberty Conference, here in Washington DC. Truly, the only means to end poverty in Africa is to practice the ideas of Freedom

"If an American farmer wants to hire a worker to pick fruits and vegetables, the fact that the worker happens to have been born in Mexico does not seem a compelling reason to stop the transaction."
