Whereas I appreciate you taking the time to find and offer the hyperlinks, they are not responsive to the article.

I was using the Cavuto/Golub interview as an example of the nonsense with which we have been and will continue to be inundated.

Similar to the old refrain, "It's the economy, stupid", "it's the demand, stupid", or, better stated, it's the demand that requires our attention.

Companies will expand and hire when and if they have greater demand for their goods and services.

Thanks,

People will not demand more until they feel confident about their economic future. Moving inexorably in the direction of European Socialism, by that, I mean 40-50% government-to-GDP ratios, is a recipe for creating confidence not in our economic future, but in its malaise.

Further, keeping the housing market from clearing, persisting in the Chinese water-torture of unending foreclosure, instills confidence only in years more of downward pressure on housing, preventing investment in, historically, one of our largest economic sectors.

Finally, having the 2nd highest corporate tax rate in the world, and perhaps the highest when accounting for dividend and capital gain taxation, and state taxation on top of each, provides incentives for new factory investment in other countries, not here, other than for grand slam no-brainers, which are a miniscule percentage of projects.

Repeat after me brain-dead FDR/Keynesian cultists: "just a little more stimulus will get us past this rough patch."

re: #3 RoadWarrior

REGARDING: People will not demand more until they feel confident about their economic future.
RESPONSE: There are two major factors: confidence and wherewithal.
The middle-class has a deficiency in both.
A simple “adjustment/fix” could be legislated by Congress: A permanent income tax credit equal to 100% of the SS taxes (6.2%) of the first $40,000 of taxable wages would, immediately, stimulate the economy with ALL benefiting.
KEYS: “Income Tax Credit” and “permanency”

REGARDING: Moving inexorably in the direction of European Socialism, by that, I mean 40-50% government-to-GDP ratios, is a recipe for creating confidence not in our economic future, but in its malaise.
RESPONSE: Whereas I believe you may be confused, I disagree with almost all this Administration has done.

REGARDING: Further, keeping the housing market from clearing, persisting in the Chinese water-torture of unending foreclosure, instills confidence only in years more of downward pressure on housing, preventing investment in, historically, one of our largest economic sectors.
RESPONSE: As I indicated, above, I disagree with almost all this Administration has done. There were fair and appropriate solutions. Fair and appropriate does not imply altruistic.

REGARDING: Finally, having the 2nd highest corporate tax rate in the world, and perhaps the highest when accounting for dividend and capital gain taxation, and state taxation on top of each, provides incentives for new factory investment in other countries, not here, other than for grand slam no-brainers, which are a miniscule percentage of projects.
RESPONSE: This is sheer nonsense for too many reasons to list here. Further, it reflects the sadness that an, apparently, intelligent mind has been brain-drained by the dog and pony rhetoric that is offered almost daily.

REGARDING: Repeat after me brain-dead FDR/Keynesian cultists: "just a little more stimulus will get us past this rough patch."
RESPONSE: Non of the so-called “stimulus” programs were rational. All have been triage, at best and more rationally characterized as infantile.

Thank you for your comments.

That's all good to know.

re: #5 Rightwingconspirator

What do I have to do to get responses to the original posting.
The posting is NOT about Golub.
Do you get it????

I used the interview to highlight the two major elements of the interview.
I went on to discuss them, and, finally, I offered a conclusion.
It was NOT about Golub.

Thanks,

mz

You could stop whining about the responses you get. That would help.

re: #7 Rightwingconspirator

You could stop whining about the responses you get. That would help.

Your perception is as confused as is your, apparent, inability to comprehend the core substance of a posting.
Since we have debated over the years, it appears that you find it very difficult to rationally engage.
You appear to elect to entertain by picking up on some ancillary words, which have almost nothing to do with the substance, and proceed to make some innocuous remarks, which are unworthy of a rational discussion.
One of your favorite protocols is to make some remark without appropriate rationale.
Just plain nonsense.
No. Not all. Only about 85% of your comments enjoy such characterization, but a score of 15% isn't Phi Beta Kappa.
Since I believe you to be intelligent, my best "conclusion" is that you think discussions are a game which includes winners and losers, and you must try anything to "feel" as though you have won.
D, that is not winning. That is a subset of "whining".
Remember...., this moment is the first moment of the rest of your life.
Renewal can be good.

best,

mz
