Probably Seneca asked for reinforcements.... and they are scraping the barrel at Langley.

They must have been scraping the barrel even when they found Seneca! It cannot get any worse.
However, I note Seneca is trying a handful of alternative ghost IDs, with attempted distinct personalities... they even argue and fight with each other. It is funny to see his attempts. Seriously though, I think it is because he has nothing else or better to do. I would imagine the USA can afford to hire more competent and smarter stooges. The level of intelligence, skills and knowledge they seek would be necessarily high, even if the moral and ethical values would be necessarily low. IMO, Seneca does not meet the first set of criteria.  He likes to be thought of as a Westerner and a Western stooge, he is neither, just a wannabe.

I wouldn't compare German industry during Nazi times to modern South Korea or Japan. Japan and Sou ...

I guess my point is that what Nazi Germany had was neither Market Capitalism or State Socialism. Both S. Korea and Japan also had family-run conglomerates directed by powerful bureaucrats to serve the National Interest. But you're right that Nazi Germany had militarism as its main goal for German Industry just like Imperial Japan. In any case, the economic systems of both S. Korea and Japan hardly qualify as "Market Capitalism" unlike those in Western countries.

Really? What is stopping you going to Japan or South Korea, raise capital, start a business and sell your product in the market? Are you telling me there is some barrier of entry to market which is in Japanese and Korean law? I don't think so.

In both Japan and South Korea, the State play a major role in protecting domestic markets from foreign competition and in supporting the Korean Chaebol and the Japanese Keiretsu against foreign companies. That's what I meant in stating that their economic systems are not based on "State-free Market Capitalism" but on "State-supported Corporatism".

Don't give Robber wrong ideas. He was in Norway earlier this year and he found to his dismay tha ...

Robert must be one of the most enlightened Americans around...... and he can find Finland on the map, unlike the uninformed trash you call your fans, who could not find Mexico if asked.

All Scandinavian countries are welfare states of one form or another..... it is something to do with the climate perhaps.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.
