  • The Fed, the Treasury, and the G7 may have discovered that the U.S. peso (a.k.a. “the dollar”) has been falling and world inflation is rising. According to the official statement of the G7 finance ministers and central bank governors:

  • G7 finance ministers are meeting in Washington this weekend to discuss the sub-prime credit mess and ways to coordinate measures aimed at backstopping the world financial system against various credit strains and systemic risks.

  • Dems Dissing Free Trade [Trade protectionism] is one of the biggest risks to our economy out there…Look around the world. What is wrong with our government? If you look at what other governments are doing...

  • I feel sorry for Mark Penn. Really, I do. As everyone knows by now, Hillary’s chief strategist was demoted following news that he was working with Colombian officials to promote that nation’s free-trade deal. But, as the old saying goes, misery loves company.

  • Surprise, surprise. Having failed to penetrate General Petraeus’s story about the great improvements on the ground in Iraq, liberals are now trying to make the case that the cost of the Iraq war may have somehow undermined the economy, and even caused the current slowdown. What complete and utter nonsense.

  • My pal Jerry Bowyer e-mailed me this morning with the following thought on Clinton bigwig Mark Penn: Free trade among Democrats is so completely dead in the water that any Democratic advisor favoring free trade is subject to the death penalty

  • Recessions are part of capitalism. They happen every so often. We’ve had two in the last super-prosperous 25 years. And it looks like we’re entering a third one after Friday’s jobs-loss report.

  • Recessions are part of capitalism. They happen every so often. We’ve had two in the last 25 years. And it looks like we are entering a third one after today’s jobs-loss report. The unemployment rate went up to 5.1 percent. Non-farm payrolls have fallen for three straight months

  • 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.
