Nicolas DaviesNICOLAS “Sandy” DAVIES joined us again on the phone to discuss hes recent article linking ISIS and the global crisis in US foreign policy to our government’s belligerent and misguided response to the mass murders of September 11th, including 94,000 air strikes, an opportunistic global military expansion and a doubling of the military budget:

Sandy has been writing on this and related topics for years and his book Blood On Our Hands: the American Invasion and Destruction of Iraq is another horrible but accurate piece of top notch investigative journalism.

I believe this is a critical perspective Punkonomics must address. On a personal level, as a professor teaching economic history, I regularly encounter the problem of having to teach the ugly truth to students who have no clue about their history and thus are, as the saying goes, condemned to repeat it. This shit keeps me up at night–literally :(
