Goldbugs worse than closeted racists

Hats off to Glenn for saying that so very well put. People don't understand how much of Paul's economic ideas are dangerous and insane. Forget abolishing Fed and a return togold standard the casual...

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

It is not a matter of being smart, we know the theory, we know it works but what we lack is determination. The Fed can lower...

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

Well if you put it that way then no delusional does not make the cut. She can't be ignorant f the composition and the structure of the stimulus. And even then I wrote a long comment in her last...

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

Let me add several things:

1. Quantitative Easing (QE) is basically Fed trying to simulate negative interest rates.

2. You can do QE in different ways. One thing Fed tried (in QE 1 & QE 2) was...

Re: Gingrich-Kleiman 2012

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

There are several issues with CNN's info graphic:

1. The word stealth; as far as I see all of things they call stealth stimulus were known publicly. So why not use another less negative and more...

Finally someone introduces McArdle to reality

It was nice to see Scheiber mention that what McArdle worries about is imaginary. Although I would have liked a more forceful repudiation of that line of thinking.

Re: Gingrich-Kleiman 2012

That is pretty long and Cato criticizing Krugman does not really inspire me to delve into it. I will do sometime in the future but if there is a specific point you wish to discuss let me know.

Gingrich-Kleiman 2012

It would make a great ticket! Mark and Newt have so much in common. I have yet to see another public figure that oozes condescension and paternalism like these two. And their slogan? Making the...

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

I repeat myself but it is important: not all of stimulus was spending.



A new low for CNN. Except for the auto bailout which is about $0.09 trillion the rest of the $3.9 trillion stealth...

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

Huh? You replied to my comment on Mangu-Ward, you actually quoted it. But there is no logical connection between what you are talking about and my original comment.

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

On a per capita basis the $288 billion tax cut actually amounts to $1000 per person. But the tax cut was made up of many small, temporary tax credits. I think the numbers should have been much...

Re: Katherine's pants are on fire

It is no hypocritical it is simply wrong! This is not a matter of debate even, it is simply falsifying an event that happened less than 4 years ago. It would be like claiming that the GOP controlled...
