I rarely lack an opinion on political economy. There are moments though when anyone has to be awed into near silence by the crass stupidity of some within the spectrum of humanity.
Donald Trump's foolish baiting of North Korea has to be described in that way. So too, of course, do North Korea's actions fall within that part of the spectrum.
The folly of unwise men granted power beyond their capacity to comprehend is almost limitless but the cost is to us all.
Which brings me back to political economy, after all.
And a quiet desire that sanity will prevail.
