Don’t worry if you missed this one, you get the same experience in 2011 and 2012 — then you have to wait a century or so.

    I thought Barry would really appreciate this snippet from an interview yesterday on NPR with economist Peter Smith. Particularly his criticism of the CRA.

    RAZ: So, as we heard earlier, Paul Krugman has criticized other economists in the U.S. for not offering policy prescriptions for how to tackle this unemployment crisis that we face in this country – unemployment that is close to 10 percent. What would your prescription be?

    Mr. SMITH: Well, stop the stimulus spending to the extent it hasn’t been done right away, look to see where there are government regulations that are restricting the ability of business to grow, and remember the recession was caused by government with things like the Community Reinvestment Act, brought in by Carter, strengthened by Clinton, which cajole banks into lending money to people who couldn’t repay it. And then they had these semi-government organizations, Fannie and Freddie, buying those mortgages.

    This is a made-in-government U.S. recession. And the best thing that government can do now is to get out of the way, don’t spend wildly, let the private sector recover.

    RAZ: That’s economist Peter Smith. His article called “Time to Topple Keynesian Economics” appears in the latest issue of the Australian journal Quadrant.


    BR: Alex, I’ll take economists who are retarded for $100 please . . .

    Well, don’t worry about these date/time conincidencs, as by then the hard right, neocons will be in control and they just say NO to everything. Our political system is broken; we have become stupidly divisive.

    Same old tired right-wing memes with no basis in reality. Of course deregulation, over-leveraging and derivatives on derivatives of derivatives had absolutely nothing to do with the current financial crisis. It was the CRA’s fault!

    ….oh lolz

    As a Pedestrian with a Commingling moon, I can say that the quint 10′s are a revelation.

    Comminglers gather together. Where? On the street. With whom? With the Pedestrians, that’s whom.

    So listen, as a Comingling Pedestrian I can say inconclusively, that… I wanna walk this way…

    …and get out my big ten inch…
