We destroy the beauty of the countryside because the un-appropriated splendors of nature have no economic value. We are capable of shutting off the sun and the stars because they do not pay a dividend. — John Maynard Keynes
Bombs & ballots in SpainMy interpretation of events in Spain is much more hopeful and radically different from some other pundits today. It's in my op-ed in this morning's Philadelphia Inquirer: 'Historic reversal' - and a warning.
Already I've received my first angry e-mail from a reader, who thinks that 11 million Spaniards and I are wimps and that the Inquirer is America's Pravda (that's because he hasn't read the new Pravda lately, which is not what he thinks -- but that's another story). For an opinion that is the polar opposite of mine (and that misinterprets completely the political dynamics of Spain), see Rewarding Terror in Spain by Edward N. Luttwak in today's NYT.
