With the dollar rising all of a sudden, and commodity prices plunging, this would be a great time for the Treasury to get out there and buy dollars. Totally squeeze the short sellers. Right now. Send a clear statement that the U.S. wants a stronger dollar.
What exactly is wrong with an optimistic president who has confidence in the long-run future of the American economy? President Bush took this stance in a recent interview with me and at the Economic Club of New York. He told me, “Like any free market, there’s also downturns, and we’re in one. But I am confident in the long-term strength of our economy.”
Has anyone noticed that John McCain is surging in the polls? According to the latest print from Rasmussen and Zogby, McCain now holds a 6 to 8 point lead against Hill-Bama. And I doubt that Senator Obama’s speech Tuesday will change anything. It was nothing more than a non-denial denial of his fidelity to Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Wright’s hard-left anti-American agenda.

Democratic Strategist Bob Shrum had strong words on last night’s show about the Hillary Clinton camp’s relentless attacks on Obama. The latest attack of course, came from Hillary-supporter Geraldine Ferraro -- Walter Mondale’s 1984 vice-presidential running mate. Shrum thinks Democrats are courting disaster. I agree.
Yesterday marked the Federal Reserve’s largest liquidity injection yet to banks and brokers. The Fed announcement produced Wall Street’s best day in five years. The Dow rocketed over 400 points. Stocks rallied around the world. The key question now: whether or not the news is a real game-changer or a 1-day wonder. Here is some interesting stock market and economic insight on all this from last night’s Kudlow & Company.
JFK understood that high tax rates, even on the rich, bring inequities into the nation's political economy.
The richest people in the world are now worth a combined $6.4 trillion, according to Forbes.
Money must be a reliable medium of exchange and a reliable store of value. Bitcoin meets neither of these requirements.
The president has been rolling back his signature legislation, so why doesn't the GOP make it official?
