    Ineptocracy [in-ep-toc'-ra-cy] - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. There are three classes of people: those who see...those who see when shown...and those who do not see. - Leonardo da Vinci

    those were minted during a brief period of time when the Romans tried outsourcing their products and having them made in China. Unfortunately, it led to the fall of the Roman Empire. Sadly, it seems that history is repeating itself these days.
