Re: Russia bans food imports from US and EU

Putin has banned food imports from the US, EU, Canada, and Japan.  He is waging war against his own people in the misguided view that it is money that people desire and not the goods and services that money will buy.  Those who remember the dark days of the Soviet Union know that the Russian people of that era had plenty of money; there simply was nothing to buy.  So Putin is proving to be a product of Soviet era economic ignorance.
