Today’s letter is brought to you by Sidebar! Ready to accelerate your career? As we all know, navigating a big career transition is hard to do. It’s one thing to set a lofty goal, and it’s another thing to have the support system for yourself to follow through.
It grows tiresome to constantly read the line "fund proxy wars" as a stand-in for what has much more often stood as beneficial Foreign Aid since the founding of the Marshall Plan. It's lazy and feels meant to gin up an automatic bias.
Definitely let's debate the pro/con of funding but at the same time you could just as easily bring up the fact that we spend as much or more on the yearly US military budget but it seems ironclad.
Pomp. Thanks for the always good summary and content. Much appreciated. I am working on a defense tech/dual use ecosystem here in South Florida. I'm a brat, have founded companies with Veterans and invest in the defense space with Stony Lonesome Group. LMK when we can talk.
Great article - my view is that we are back in 1992 again, but with the burden of debt! At same time I agree it is possible for US and the West to innovate their way out of this mess.
Good summary and very well stated sir!
