Could It Happen Here?


Under Construction


I have often said (for example, in the article on The Mexican Peso Crisis) that those who worked in the Administration during the debates over NAFTA and over the winter 1995 peso-support package smelled for the first time a whiff of Europe's politics of the 1930s--when Communists and Fascists joined forces to overwhelm the center, both left and right thinking that they would be the ones to pick up the pieces when the center collapsed. The right was correct. Others have reminded me that people on the conservative side smelled the same whiff at the end of the 1960s. And this has provoked me to start putting up some stuff relevant to the long-run stability of political democracy.
