I had posted this earlier in another thread, but I think this letter from Carl Levin to IRS is so significant, it needs a thread of its own.
Thought I might add this to the “possible ISB” reading list. Niall Ferguson is somewhat of a “celebrity academic” and author of a number of books including “The Ascent of Money” – which I would highly recommend. In any case, he is also the author of “Empire” which is described as a book about:
“The rise and demise of the British world order and the lessons for global power.”
I would recommend this book as an aid to understanding what is going on in the world today.
Obviously the intention is provide possible lessons for America.
Here is an interview on TVO with the author.
