    Good ideas don’t die and they have a timeliness in human affairs….

    Ask Mr. Kenner if he has any data on the IP addresses of those looking at your article. That could be very, very interesting data.

    Ask the FP webmaster, the IT department. The web server log should show the source of the traffic.

    The American Global Trading System, that replaced the British Global Trading System, has grown into the largest and most efficient market in human history. It is responsible for uplifting billions of people out of abject poverty, and exposing them to the superior American Culture.
    The US owns the liquidity to this system with $4.5 Trillion in foreign bank held Treasuries. Every export model economy on Earth is just beginning to realize, how they have overpaid for those Dollars, and how little they would be worth if paid off. Paying off those Treasuries would make the US an export model economy instantly, and in the best way possible. US businesses, which are the survivors of decades of brutal foreign competition, would gobble up world market share in every major industry. Market share that would last long after the impulse that created it dissipates.
    And they thought they were cheating us with their currency manipulations, and we didn’t know it. It just goes to show that you can’t con an honest man, but conning a crooked nation is a piece of cake.

    I think I can shed some light on the situation. Mead is an author who is commonly cited by the policy debate community. The Sticky Power article was used in a recent brief published by a major debate community. That would probably drive up the traffic.

    PS. WRM, your 2009 article entitled “Only Makes You Stronger” (http://www.tnr.com/article/only-makes-you-stronger-0)is very commonly cited as saying that economic collapse leads to global nuclear war. Is that an appropriate reading of your articles?
