(Tubbs Hill, Lake Coeur d’Alene. PHOTOGRAPHER: KYLE JOHNSON FOR BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK) For a century, the mines of the Coeur d’Alene Mountains in North Idaho produced much of the heavy metals that made the U.S. a global superpower.

Why the most expensive military ever still can’t win a war A friend who used to work in the Pentagon told me about the end of year budget meetings he had to attend. There, military personnel would frantically brainstorm ideas on how to spend the rest of their budgets.
