Word of the Week

Cui Bono: 

  1. 1:  a principle that probable responsibility for an act or event lies with one having something to gain

  2. 2:  usefulness or utility as a principle in estimating the value of an act or policy

I saw this word in a Brookings Institute article on the Panama Papers, a news story that’s grabbed my attention.

  1. The Brookings Institution is run by neoliberal warmongers, who are actively trying to get the US to go to war on Iran.

    Cui Bono simply means “who benefits?”
