    Mathematics of a Coup - Part 2 with David Rosnick

    Mathematics of a Coup - Part 2 with David Rosnick

    Last week, in part 1 we left off the story with the OAS and their hired guns using “Creative mathematics” to defend their attempted coup in Bolivia. Today, David Rosnick from the Center for Economic Policy and Research (CEPR) continues to compare the state of the US elections with that of Bolivia. We also learn about the more nefarious purpose of the OAS, which acts as a US proxy in regime-change.

    In 2019, after the coup, Bolivia fought back and were faced with overwhelming force.

Today, we have David Rosnick from the Center for Economic Policy and Research (CEPR) telling us about the “intellectual collaborators” who gave a pseudo-intellectual cover for the coup.
