    That Putin’s Russia looks increasingly attractive to German business
    tells us much more about Germany and the EU than it does about
    Russia—and what it tells us isn’t good.

    So why are we in Nato and why do we have troops based in Germany? Move Ramstein to Krakow or Wroclaw.

      This is precisely what I have been saying for years. NATO servers no purpose other than to provide lots of Flag-level sinecures for ambitious milicrats. This is a waste of resources for us, and the time has come to end it.

        But, what about Montenegro?… so close to NATO accession.

      Move it to Detroit.

    If the Germans want to jump into bed with the Russians, why should we commit resources to defend them from the Russians. Until that question is answered by the Germans, we should look forward to removing our resources from Central and Eastern Europe.

    Sorry Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia. It sucks to be you.

    Take note, German investors are coming to Russia (they never really left), but they are not coming to “democratic”, pro-western Ukraine. That’s because Ukrainian kleptocracy, coupled with ongoing brutal civil war, makes Russia look like investor paradise by comparison.

    “the inexorable growth of regulation”

    Half of the people in the U.S. believe this to be an essential engine of progress and equality. It is surprising TAI reports this in a negative context.

      Why does this surprise you? TAI is produced by a bunch of academics (most of them are interns, if I am not mistaken), few if any of whom have even the slightest understanding of the costs of regulations….
