Joe Biden’s man shows the world why US policy towards Russia has completely failed

Regular readers will know of my deep scorn for “Russia Watchers”  – Westerners who, as a rule, purport to have an understanding of the country beyond their actual competence. Sadly, they are an unavoidable hazard on this beat, much as snow is to Siberia, or blazing summer sun to Krasnodar. For the most part they […]

IMF working towards banning cash payments

   As the Federal Government moves to ban cash transactions above $10,000, there’s a theory gaining traction that the real motive for the cash ban isn’t the so-called “black economy”, but rather, to give authorities greater control over your behaviour during recessions.
