Bonus Quotation of the Day…

Summary:
… is this recent Facebook post by Bob Higgs: We can all be grateful that Trump and his minions do not apply the “logic” of their international trade policy to other aspects of their economic policy making. If they did so, they might well insist that because the governments of North Korea and Venezuela implement economic policies that result in the mass starvation of their people, the U.S. government should implement similar policies, “to even the playing field.” One easily imagines Trump speaking to a throng of his supporters, boasting with a moronic grin on his face: “It’s easy to win a starvation war. Nobody knows more about starving people than I do” (uproarious applause). Comments
