What follows below is an excerpt from my conversation on Kudlow & Company last night with supply-sider Steve Forbes regarding Phil Gramm’s future with the McCain campaign. Mr. Forbes is the president & CEO of Forbes Inc and has advised the campaign on economic policy. Click here for more of my thoughts on this developing story.
When the Phil Gramm flap broke out about 10 days ago, with his Washington Times interview miscues about a nation of whiners and a mental recession, other McCain economic advisors were quick to lambaste the former Texas senator. Douglas Holtz-Eakin told the PBS "Nightly Business Report" that Gramm is no longer giving advice to McCain or his aides.
What follows below is an unofficial transcript of my interview on Kudlow & Company last night with former Republican presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. We talked about inflation, bailouts, the Fed's role, Fannie & Freddie and much more. Last night's K&C market panel also joined in the discussion.
I see this morning that some of my CNBC colleagues are talking down to Jim Bunning, almost making fun of him as some sort of “odd duck,” because the Kentucky senator dared to squawk back at Henry Paulson (and for that matter Ben Bernanke) during yesterday’s Senate hearings on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
In a dramatic move yesterday President Bush removed the executive-branch moratorium on offshore drilling. Today, at a news conference, Bush repeated his new position, and slammed the Democratic Congress for not removing the congressional moratorium on the Outer Continental Shelf and elsewhere.
Investors trashed shares of these government-sponsored enterprises last week, knocking them down almost 50 percent on a wave of bankruptcy rumors. Former St. Louis Fed president Bill Poole argued that technically, the two are already in bankruptcy, while fears spread they couldn’t even raise overnight money to finance their operations.
I noticed that gold went up $10 this morning to around $970 on the news that Uncle Sam will backstop mortgage lenders Fannie and Freddie. Gold, of course, is still a key barometer of dollar value and future inflation, while it may be a sidebar to the bigger story of saving Fannie and Freddie.
What follows below is an unofficial transcript of my interview on Kudlow & Company last night with investment banker and former Texas Senator Phil Gramm. Mr. Gramm is a top economic advisor to John McCain.
