“Over the years I have developed an unscientific and haphazard—but often accurate—politically incorrect method of guessing whether a nation is likely to be perennially insolvent and wracked by corruption. Do average passersby throw down or pick up litter? After a minor fender-bender, do drivers politely exchange information, or do they scream and yell with wild gesticulations? Can you drink tap water, or should you avoid it? Do you mostly pay what the price tag says, or are you expected to pay in untaxed cash and then haggle over the unstated cost? To put these crude stereotypes more abstractly, is civil society mostly moderate, predicated on the rule of law, and meritocratic—or is it characterized by self-indulgence, cynicism, and tribalism? Culture still matters.”Victor Davis Hanson in NationalReview.com
