  • In a column written just after the Bear Stearns meltdown, I asked whether the venerable old firm was made a sacrificial lamb. Was Washington sending Main Street a signal that a big Wall Street firm could fail?

  • People are wondering how far home prices have to fall before hitting bottom, or some sustainable level. One way is to look at what a price reversion to trend would entail. From 1982 to 2001, median existing home prices grew at a 4 percent per year trend rate. We select 2001 as a cut-off, because the Fed dropped the funds rate to 1.75 percent and home sales took off in the subsequent years.

  • What follows is the transcript of my interview on Kudlow and Company last night with former Republican presidential candidate, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

  • The market is rallying big on news reports that Bush will support some kind of Frank–Dodd bill to bailout as much as $400 billion in sub-prime mortgages. CNBC is talking about the ISM, but I doubt that’s much of a factor.

  • The latest Rasmussen poll in Pennsylvania shows that Hillary’s Bosnia gaffe is hurting her much more among voters in the Keystone State than are Obama’s problems with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

  • 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.

  • Pollster Frank Newport, a Kudlow & Company regular and editor-in-chief of the Gallup Poll, revealed some very interesting information this morning. These numbers below are a big deal.

  • 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.

  • I have really learned to like Ben Bernanke. He’s the man. And his interest-rate cuts are vastly more effective than the so-called economic-stimulus rebate plan coming out of Congress and the White House.

  • 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.
