Doug Dietrich on Alternate World History

I'd never heard of this guy before I heard him on Fetzer's show, and I thought the first 90 minutes or so were completely fascinating. The guy is extremely impressive in his breadth of knowledge and articulateness and just rapid-fire delivery. That being said, his schtick got a bit old towards the end and I watched a couple of YouTube videos of him that were not so great. But his whole view of the American empire in the 20th century is quite fascinating and I know at least some of what he was saying was correct.

Dietrich's view that Japan won WWII and was still a huge super-power, reminded me a bit of this piece on Japan's banking and economic system. Fascinating but confusing.
