  • 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.”

  • Here’s a table showing exactly what the Fed did Tuesday, and how much they have already done. Tuesday was the central bank's $200 billion dollar announcement. This is the Term Security Lending Facility (TSLF).

  • 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.

  • Recession or not, the economy is definitely in a significant slowdown. This poses a daunting challenge for the Republican Party. Not only could it make Senator McCain’s election tougher, but it’s going to affect House and Senate races as well.
