Russia Insider. Chuck L: “‘ Obama’s theory here is simple: Ukraine is a core Russian interest but not an American one, so Russia will always be able to maintain escalatory dominance there.’
So why did Obama let himself be talked into approving Victoria Nuland’s coup d’etat thingie in February, 2014?”

And the author manages to overlook the fact that corporate profits are at a record share of GDP, nearly double the level Warren Buffet deemed the highest sustainable level in the early 2002, and that shift is due to both of the post 2000 expansions featuring the lowest share of labor income increases (hiring + wage gains) relative to all past post-WWII expansions. In other words, redistribution is overdue and would almost certainly be a for growth.
