I hypothetically ate Combat Rations Yesterday
I took a short nap yesterday and had this really vivid dream that I got a chance to eat some US combat rations aka MREs.
The US also decided to impose an embargo on these countries, I guess to show that they do not condole or tolerate such oppression? But then restricting trade is not the solution, in fact free trade might just be the solution in introducing these countries to more liberalized markets. I always remember my post about Paul Romer's Charter Cities and how he explained that Hong Kong was the greatest influence and inspiration in liberalizing the markets of China and alleviated more poverty than any other kind of charity work we've tried.
