Today is the 70th anniversary of the failed attempt to assassinate Hitler. That the death of Hitler on July 20, 1944 would have been a Good Thing [those who studied British history and read 1066 and All That will get the joke] is not an economic point, per se, although I guess you could stretch and say that it’s based on a crude cost/benefit analysis.

I think this date is under-celebrated. I notice that some Germans are celebrating it. Good for them. So Happy Almost Assassinate Hitler day.
