Yesterday we wrote noted that Russia is one of the croniest countries in the world. Last night Mike Pence also identified Russia as a crony capitalist entity. That was good to see.

“This whole Putin thing — America is stronger than Russia,” Pence said. “The whole economy is 16 times larger than the Russian economy. America’s political system is superior to the crony, corrupt, capitalist system in Russia in every way.”
We’ve also long noted that we live in a global crony capitalist system and that crony capitalism runs deep here at home too of course.
