Michael Hudson is believed by many to be the wisests of the U.S. economists who have not "gone over to the dark side of the force," i.e., the government in Washington. Washington has eradicated journalism in the U.S. as we used to know it, replacing the news with 100% government lies-cum-propaganda. So if you get your news from the "mainstream media", you are likely to believe that Russia attacked Ukraine and is suddenly threatening the western world, whereas the truth is the reverse of that. As Professor Hudson explains, the sanctions imposed upon Russia are (1) undeserved because Russia has attacked no one, (2) gravely damaging the economies of Washington's vassals in Europe, (3) driving Russia to make economic alliances with China, India, Iran, and Turkey and (4) not a problem because the ruble, though devalued against the dollar, is accepted without discount by the countries listed in (3).
