I took a double major in Economics and History in college in the 1970s. My "sweet spot" probably lies at the intersection of those two subjects. For instance, "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes" was really an "economic" admonition--to conserve ammunition.

I am the published author of "A Modern Approach to Graham and Dodd Investing" (Wiley, 2004), an (economic) "history of the future," and the unpublished author of "Axis Overstretch," an economic analysis of World War II.

comment Has feudalism been a programmed event for nations in the past?
I made the question less "opinion based" by putting it in the past tense, where it can be answered factually.

comment What was the role of U.S. involvement in World War II?
I don't see this question as being opinion-based (as edited). It asks people to compare the actual U.S, contribution to the war, as opposed to the fictitious contribution, and explain why the hypothetical results were different from the actual.

comment Why some countries have more than one name?
The question might not be "too broad," now that I have narrowed the focus to "these" countries.
