Adding on to my recent post about LatAm media coverage, where I said:
“…Hugo and Evo are hugely popular in Latin America because they’re good for Latin America”
Apparently Otto agrees in his recent post about the Bolivian economy, saying:
“A once and future coca leaf grower runs countries better than teams of dumbasses in suits (you know them by the name ‘economists’) with multisquillon dollar eddycations…”
My only issue with that is that Otto narrowed it down to economists, instead of the more general rich old guys in suits. Whether it’s Alan Garcia or Jack Welch or Al Gore, be leary of rich old guys in suits who profess to know what’s good for average Joe. Far too often said rich old guys in suits have made big bucks robbing said average Joe blind.
