Following is a transcript of my recent interview with former Texas Sen. Phil Gramm, who boasts a long, distinguished, pro-growth track record. Currently a UBS investment banker, Gramm is a steadfast supporter of free markets, a staunch free trader, tax cutter, budget cutter, and entitlement reformer. He also happens to be GOP presidential nominee John McCain’s chief economic advisor.
The real winner yesterday was John McCain. No doubt about it. Mac completed his primary victory journey in one of the greatest comebacks in American political history.
Editorial in Wednesday's New York Sun: "The best advice for Senator McCain that we've read is the call in the adjacent columns, by Larry Kudlow, for the senator to lead a campaign in respect of the dollar. Mr. Kudlow, a supply-sider of the Reagan school, reckons Mr. McCain should campaign to reverse the declining fortunes of what he calls 'the Bush wartime dollar' because, as Mr. Kudlow puts it, 'America's prestige is on the line.'"
If Sen. John McCain wants to run as a candidate of change, and if he’s truly interested in distancing himself from President Bush, he should reverse the declining fortunes of the Bush wartime dollar. America's prestige is on the line. Right now the greenback is in virtual freefall.

When Rich Lowry called me a while ago to report the passing of Bill Buckley, I had to work hard to catch my breath and swallow this news. He was a great man. I am privileged and honored to have shared a part of his wonderful life over the past fifteen years.
Is the Fed in Denial About Inflation? Home prices are falling, but consumer and producer prices are rising. That’s a conundrum for the Fed. Do investors really want the central bank to keep easing interest rates in the teeth of a 4.3 percent 12-month change in the consumer price index?
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?
