I’m reading Deirdre McCloskey’s book on the origins of modern commerce. She makes it very clear that openness is a critical component of modern commerce. She talks about openness in its form as honesty and absence of corruption, the elements that keep banana republics and much of the tribal world poor and wretched.
While reading this, the American Department of Justice, the President and the FBI announced that Democrat candidate for president, H. Clinton was not guilty of a Federal crime. Despite the fact that she is totally guilty of violating many Federal laws.
This sends a message directly and indirectly to every American that some people are above the law. That justice in America in the hands of Democrats is controlled by corrupt people.
This is a sad signal to our modern commercial society. It is terribly harmful because it is a pair of scissors that cuts one of the fibers that holds our whole commercial society together.
It is horrible, serious and destructive. I know that as a pro commerce advocate.
Yet I don’t know the extent or depth of the ramifications. Economic growth has slowed to a crawl under the total dishonesty of the Obama Democrats. Will growth stop all together now?
