Treasury man Henry Paulson’s ideas to remodel the regulatory system governing financial markets are dominating the headlines today. But there may be a bigger story coming down the road, one that is of much greater immediate significance to economic policy.
Hillary’s fictitious tale of sniper fire in Bosnia might help Obama, but the real winner here is John McCain. The CBS footage making the rounds clearly refutes the former first lady’s claim that she had to run for cover from sniper fire when she got off the plane in Bosnia.
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.
Here's the third and final installment in the Laffer Curve video series. It explains why lawmakers need to ditch their dreadful static scoring model when it comes to the revenue-estimating process, in favor of the more accurate dynamic scoring model.
Did Bear Stearns really need to go down in flames? It’s a question that needs to be asked, and my answer is no. Of course, I don’t know the value of Bear Stearns’s assets, and whether they could have served as collateral for private or government loans. So I cannot be entirely certain that my answer is correct. But here’s how I see it:
Is there a rift between the White House and the Treasury on U.S. dollar policy? President Bush said yesterday on PBS’s Nightly Business Report that the dollar’s fall to record lows against the euro is bad news. He said, “Those aren’t good tidings, if you’re for a strong dollar like I am.”
Janet Yellen believes rising inflation will lead to lower unemployment, but over the past decades we've seen the opposite.
The Kochs are fighting back. And I hope they do more of it.
Despite Obama's equal-pay push, women make 77 cents for every dollar men make at the White House. Jake Novak explains.
Even Jim Cramer now admits the Obama administration is hostile to business, says Jake Novak. And that's hurting the jobs recovery.
