  • Busch: FDR And Obama: Be Very Careful Thursday, 29 Jan 2009 | 9:59 AM ET

    The New Deal was actually a combination of socialism and cartelization of industry with price controls and failed to stimulate growth and helped plunge the economy into the "Depression within a Depression" in 1937, says Andrew Busch.

  • Obama's Stimulus Package Passes Vote in House Wednesday, 28 Jan 2009 | 6:16 PM ET

    Moving with remarkable speed, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives approved $819 billion in spending increases and tax cuts at the heart of President Barack Obama's economic recovery program.

  • Obama Meets With Business Leaders on Economy Wednesday, 28 Jan 2009 | 11:22 AM ET
    President Barack Obama

    Obama used his talks with business leaders to keep up a lobbying campaign for passage of his economic plan, which could be the signature domestic initiative of his first term as he struggles to deal with the worst financial crisis in decades.

  • Geography Is Dividing Democrats Over Energy Tuesday, 27 Jan 2009 | 11:26 AM ET

    President Obama is moving quickly to act on the environmental promises that were a centerpiece of his campaign. But tackling global warming will be far more difficult — and more costly — than the new emissions standards for automobiles he ordered with the stroke of a pen on Monday, the New York Times reports.

  • Obama’s Wounded Treasury Man Tuesday, 27 Jan 2009 | 8:45 AM ET
    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner

    Since Geithner is something of a wounded warrior from the tax non-payment controversy, Team Obama’s economic policy is shifting toward a Larry Summers power-center right now.

  • Busch: The Stimulating Pork Plan.... Monday, 26 Jan 2009 | 10:23 AM ET
    Andrew Busch

    I continue to be concerned over this effectiveness of this spending plan and the timing of the stimulus, says Andrew Busch.

  • Bowyer: I Was Wrong About Geithner Friday, 23 Jan 2009 | 12:57 PM ET

  • Busch: You Know Things Are Bad When.... Friday, 23 Jan 2009 | 10:57 AM ET

    With rumors swirling over a nationalization of Citigroup and serious questions being raised about the Geithner nomination, the US is in for a tough weekend, says Andrew Busch.

  • Team Obama has gotten its way on the Tim Geithner nomination for Treasury Secretary - but the Democrats may rue the day, since Geithner’s lack of character and truth-telling will surely take its toll and sully President Obama’s new era of responsibility.

  • Stimulus Package: GOP Upset As It Moves To House Thursday, 22 Jan 2009 | 4:00 PM ET

    The House hopes to vote next week on the $825 billion package sought by President Barack Obama to help the struggling economy, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

  • Busch: A Modest Suggestion-Keep It In Perspective Tuesday, 20 Jan 2009 | 10:20 AM ET

    Today is an historic day for the United States as we inaugurate our 44th president Barack Hussein Obama. To say that the world holds it's collective breath today is an understatement.

  • How Big-Government Is Obama? Friday, 9 Jan 2009 | 8:48 AM ET

    Obama has offered an $800 billion package, with plenty of infrastructure spending that alleges to create three million jobs. Nobody really believes infrastructure spending will end the recession or create permanent new jobs. However, it’s interesting just how much the Obama plan has changed since the election.

  • Busch: Delayed Stimulus, But Where's It Going? Tuesday, 6 Jan 2009 | 9:37 AM ET
    Andrew Busch

    As Congress comes back from vacation and starts a new session with new members, the first task is the stimulus plan. While President-elect Obama had hoped for a bill to sign by his inauguration, the political wheels are unable to spin fast enough to produce a document until mid-February.

  • Who's To Blame For Failure Of Auto Bailout? Friday, 12 Dec 2008 | 9:37 AM ET
    Bailout Denied

    "Karnac the Magnificent" I am not. Heck, for weeks I've been predicting Congress would ultimately come up with a bailout for the Big 3. So after the Senate shot down the aid package last night, it's no wonder my wife said to me, "Gee Einstein, guess you were wrong about what would happen on Capitol Hill."

  • Auto Bailout Is Nationalization of Dinosaurs: Hendry Wednesday, 10 Dec 2008 | 4:15 AM ET

    The automakers' bailout will not boost Wall Street as investors are unlikely to see advantages in subsidies granted to "dinosaurs," Hugh Hendry, chief investment officer and partner at Eclectica told CNBC.

  • An Alternative to Bailout Nation Wednesday, 3 Dec 2008 | 1:39 PM ET

    At his news conference this morning, where he introduced New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson as Commerce-secretary designate, President-elect Obama refused to play his hand on the Detroit/GM bailout story. That tells me he’s aware that the country is getting fed up with the thought of bailout nation.

  • Predictions: 9 For '09 From Analyst Greg Valliere Monday, 1 Dec 2008 | 2:12 PM ET

    After watching the dysfunctional, bickering Congress and a Bush Administration that looks out of gas, there are finally legitimate reasons for optimism coming from Washington—and when was the last time you heard that?

  • Will Democrats Tinker With Mutual Funds, 401k Plans? Wednesday, 5 Nov 2008 | 6:21 PM ET

  • Chandler: No Clear Market Reaction to Obama Wednesday, 5 Nov 2008 | 9:26 AM ET

    left/CNBC/Sections/News_And_Analysis/_Blogs/Guest_Blog/__COVER/chandler_marc_100.jpg110010055lefttruehttp://msnbcmedia.msn.comfalse1Pfalsefalse It is difficult to detect a clear market reaction to the US electoral results.  The US dollar is broadly firmer, but after yesterday's big setback, it seems largely technical in nature.
