Spiting Putin, Banning Nukes

Sheldon Richman is spot on in his solution to preventing foreign meddling in American elections. Political power should be so weak that its inconsequential, and so what’s the point in meddling politically? (Meddling economically, on the other hand…)

Likewise, political solutions to banning nuclear weapons should make way to markets securing business partnerships in foreign lands. Deterrence only works because states are so involved in the political affairs of other states, rather than letting their markets do the talking and create “mutually assured wealth explosion” in the pursuit of nuclear disarmament.

It never fails, criminals forcing the rest of us into their crimes and to bear their costs, which is always economically ignorant and thus, short-sighted.
