a small, sassy analysis of stupidity

 An offering from The Guardian:

It’s sometimes argued that we should be grateful for stupid leaders, since at least their stupidity makes life less hazardous: imagine if they were sufficiently focused and clever to implement their worst ideas! But that wasn’t the view of the late Italian economist Carlo Cipolla. In 1976 he published a tongue-in-cheek essay that’s been gaining new attention in the age of Trump.


  1. I think we've got both in a single package.

  2. Stupid, Devious or Demonic, This Fiasco called Trump, makes me wish we had recall procedures in the US Constitution.
