Would you have brain surgery performed by this man?

When we visit a doctor or a lawyer we like to think that this person has been trained, measured and assessed by their peers before they are allowed to sell their skills on the open market. If you needed brain surgery, you would be very unhappy to use someone who had read a few books and who was confident that they could ‘have a go’. After all, your life is at stake.

But when it comes to being leader of the most powerful country in the world, you don’t need any qualifications whatsoever (as far as I can tell) apart from one – wealth. And yet, the entire world is entrusting their lives with this person. What sort of system is that?
