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.”
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.
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.'"
Behind in the polls, Obama's rekindling class warfare against banks, corporations, and rich people, says Larry Kudlow.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry still looks strong for 2016 despite a phony Democratic indictment, says Larry Kudlow.
Many economists are writing off 2% growth as "secular stagnation." To quote JFK, "We can do bettah!," Larry Kudlow and Stephen Moore say.
CNBC Senior Contributor Larry Kudlow and economist Robert Sinche argue that the best kind of welfare the U.S. can provide is a job.
