It’s only my opinion, but I believe we never seem to learn the economic lessons of history. It could be that lots of folks have short memories or forgot what caused their troubles in the first place.
I get a lot of emails. Occasionally I get one from someone in Nigeria offering to split a fortune with me if I’ll help them get their money out of Africa. All I have to do is give them a bank account number so they can transfer their Nigerian funds into American money.
