Despite Federal Aid, Many Banks Fail to Revive Lending

Binyamin Appelbaum, The Washington Post: "The federal government has invested almost $200 billion in U.S. banks over the last three months to spark new lending to consumers and businesses. So far, it hasn't worked. Lending has declined, and banks that got government money on average have reduced lending more sharply than banks that didn't."

The unnecessary depression

The Libertarian Enterprise
by L. Neil Smith

02/01/09

Government is doing the exact opposite of what really needs to be done. George Bush and Barack Obama have pumped trillions more in counterfeit currency and credit into an economy already deathly ill from such treatment. If it goes on, we stand to suffer hyperinflation (all inflation consists of, no matter what they told you in Economics 101, is government generation of phony money) followed by another, very possibly terminal depression. Before it’s over, the country — if not the whole world — will be locked down under brutal military rule, and our species likely will never again know freedom, progress, or prosperity...

Top 10 reasons to oppose the stimulus

FreedomWorks
by Matt Kibbe

02/02/09

Our history is replete with examples of ’stimulus’ spending failing to move our economy toward prosperity — Bush just tried it, Ford tried it. Even Christina Romer, Obama’s Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers agrees. Romer wrote in a study, ‘Our estimates suggest that fiscal actions contributed only moderately to recoveries.’ The New Deal didn’t end the Great Depression and Obama’s stimulus package won’t end this recession. In fact, two UCLA economists published a study in 2004 finding FDR’s similar New Deal policies prolonged the Great Depression by seven years...

Obama’s Keynesian mistake

Cato Institute
by Ike Brannon and Chris Edwards

01/29/09

Federal policymakers are moving ahead with a huge $800-billion stimulus plan to return the U.S. economy to growth. Will it work? Decades of macroeconomic research suggest that it won’t. Indeed, the revival of old-fashioned Keynesianism to fight the recession seems to stem more from political expediency than modern economic theory or historical experience...

Money for nothing won’t grow the economy

Boston Globe
by Jeff Jacoby

02/01/09

Commenting on my recent column about the bloated ’stimulus’ package making its way through Congress, one reader insisted that what matters most right now is getting money into people’s hands. ‘In the face of rapidly rising unemployment and idle productive capacity, any kind of federal spending will have a stimulus in the short run,’ he wrote. ‘Digging holes and filling them in would help to create jobs and consumer demand because those wielding the shovels would earn a paycheck that they could spend.’ More than 70 years ago, John Maynard Keynes argued much the same thing — that government spending on anything — ‘pyramid-building, earthquakes, even wars’ — would generate a beneficial stimulus...

The financial meltdown and market failure

The Distributed Republic
by Brandon Berg

02/03/09

Many people who weren’t terribly fond of the free market to begin with have, predictably, been pointing gleefully to the recent meltdown of the financial sector as incontrovertible evidence that free-market economics has failed and that we need much more government regulation. And some more government spending and higher taxes, while we’re at it. This suggests to me a considerable degree of confusion regarding how markets work, when they don’t, and when we can expect government to do better...

United States of Argentina

The American Conservative
by Philip Jenkins

Anyone not alarmed by the state of the U.S. economy is not paying attention. As our Dear Leader begins his term, the theory of very big government has the support of an alarmingly broad political consensus. Despite the obvious dangers — devastating inflation and the ruin of the dollar — the United States seems pledged to a debt-funded spending spree of gargantuan proportions. In opposing this trend, critics face the problem that the perils to which they point sound very theoretical and abstract. Perhaps Zimbabwe prints its currency in multi-trillion units, but that’s a singularly backward African dictatorship: the situation has nothing to do with us. Yet an example closer to home might be more instructive... (for publication 02/09/09)

No administration is above the law

Freedom Politics
by Doug Bandow

02/02/09

Without question, President George W. Bush did what he thought was right, but much of it was wrong. He was wrong to take America into an unnecessary war. He was wrong to sacrifice civil liberties for the appearance of security. For these and other errors he deserves to be exiled to the far reaches of the American political system. For none of them does he deserve to be prosecuted, however. No matter how bitter our political disagreements, they should never be treated as crimes. But high office provides no immunity for criminal acts. Although President Barack Obama has indicated his reluctance to investigate his predecessor, he should appoint an independent prosecutor, to avoid charges of partisan retribution, to detail what Bush administration officials did, assess the legality of their conduct, consider any factors mitigating illegal behavior, and bring any appropriate indictments...

Time for a defense policy that defends America
Campaign For Liberty
by Doug Bandow

02/01/09

The American empire is in shambles. U.S. soldiers and Marines who expected flowers and candies in Iraq were cut down by bombs and bullets instead. Afghanistan is spinning ever further out of Washington’s control. Russia, China, and even Europe increasingly resist U.S. demands. At the same time, America stands on an economic precipice. The national debt is currently $10.6 trillion, almost $35,000 per person. The deficit for 2009 will exceed $1 trillion. Congress is preparing to spend almost another trillion dollars to ’stimulate’ the economy. And America’s long-term unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare exceed $100 trillion. In other words, the U.S. is effectively broke at home and increasingly unable to control events abroad. Yet the new administration looks almost identical to the old one when it comes to foreign policy...

Waste, fraud in Iraq being repeated in Afghanistan

Las Vegas Review-Journal

02/02/09

Waste and corruption that marred Iraq’s reconstruction will be repeated in Afghanistan unless the U.S. transforms the unwieldy bureaucracy managing tens of billions of dollars in infrastructure projects, government watchdogs warned Monday. The U.S. has devoted more than $30 billion to rebuilding Afghanistan. Yet despite the hard lessons learned in Iraq, where the U.S. has spent nearly $51 billion on reconstruction, the effort in Afghanistan is headed down the same path, the watchdogs told a new panel investigating wartime contracts...

Systemfrage gestellt - Bilanz des Weltsozialforums 2009

„Wie ein Geist schwebte über dem Weltsozialforum (WSF) das Treffen in Davos. Auf dem Weltwirtschaftsforum in der Schweiz trug man der Lage angemessen schwarze Anzüge, Abgesang auf eine Wirtschaftsordnung dominierte, die eigene Perspektivlosigkeit konnte kaum verborgen werden. In Belém herrschte dagegen eine Stimmung des Aufbruchs. Spür- und erlebbar war: Die Veränderung des neoliberalen Systems steht auf der Tagesordnung, nur durch eine grundlegende gesellschaftliche Neugestaltung läßt sich die fundamentale Krise überwinden. Hoffung und Engagement prägten diese vor allem von jungen Menschen aus Lateinamerika und Westeuropa, allerdings kaum aus Afrika und Asien, besuchte Manifestation. Die 100000 Teilnehmer repräsentierten die Kräfte des Wandels. Sie setzten die Systemfrage auf die internationale Agenda, werden für den Wandel kämpfen und sich nicht wieder wegdrängen lassen.

How to Rescue the Bank Bailout

Joseph E. Stiglitz, CNN: "America's recession is moving into its second year, with the situation only worsening. The hope that President Obama will be able to get us out of the mess is tempered by the reality that throwing hundreds of billions of dollars at the banks has failed to restore them to health, or even to resuscitate the flow of lending. Every day brings further evidence that the losses are greater than had been expected and more and more money will be required."

Economic death spiral at the Pentagon

AntiWar.Com
by Chalmers Johnson

02/03/09

Given our economic crisis, the estimated trillion dollars we spend each year on the military and its weaponry is simply unsustainable. Even if present fiscal constraints no longer existed, we would still have misspent too much of our tax revenues on too few, overly expensive, overly complex weapons systems that leave us ill-prepared to defend the country in a real military emergency. We face a double crisis at the Pentagon: we can no longer afford the pretense of being the Earth’s sole superpower, and we cannot afford to perpetuate a system in which the military-industrial complex makes its fortune off inferior, poorly designed weapons...
