EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Is Paul Krugman the New Intellectual Front for Donald Trump?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 12, 2018

You have to talk out of both sides of your mouth when you are desperate to make sense.

Nothing spells CONTROL like KRUGMAN.

http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2018/05/is-paul-krugman-intellectual-front-for.html

Robert Wenzel

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has gone from bad to worse. During the current period where the stock market and cotton are high and the living is easy with unemployment low, straight Keynesian theory would call for a shrinkage in government spending. But not Paulie K.
He tells his readers at the Gray Lady:

The bottom line here is that the case for aggressive monetary and, when necessary, fiscal policies to sustain demand is much stronger than we used to think. Errors like the turn to austerity and the ECB’s 2011 rate hike were much bigger mistakes than the previous doctrine allowed for; premature Fed rate hikes would be a bigger sin than even the Fed seems to realize now…

On that view, the failure to supply enough demand after 2008 imposed an enormous cost, which we can never regain. And looking forward, the risks of being too loose versus too tight are hugely asymmetric: letting the economy slump again will again impose big costs that are never made up, while running it hot won’t store up any meaningful trouble for the future.

Got that? He is trying to nudge the Federal Reserve to go slow on interest rate hikes.
This is straight out Donald Trump theory. See: Fed Chairman Finalist Leaks His Oval Office Conversation With Trump.
Krugman should be embarrassed. He has become the intellectual front for wacky Trump economic thinking.

Making American Menial – Cafe Hayek

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 12, 2018

Economics isn’t as easy it may seem.

http://cafehayek.com/2018/05/making-american-menial.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+CafeHayek+%28Cafe+Hayek%29
Here’s a letter to Donald Trump:

Earlier today you said “We’re importing a lot of cars. We want a lot of those cars to be built in the U.S. Build them here, and also ship them overseas. Doing a reverse act.”

Soooo….. You want to arrange for us to spend more of our own time, labor, and resources producing valuable outputs to be shipped overseas, and for us to receive fewer valuable outputs in return. I’m stumped. Can you spell out just how this arrangement will “make America great again”?

America’s Word Is Worthless – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 10, 2018

Will Russia finally wake up and stop inviting more dangerous situations by her extraordinary indecisiveness? If Putin doesn’t put his foot down, he is going to get us all killed.

Paul Craig Roberts

We can now dismiss all hope that Trump’s campaign promises to pull out of Syria, normalize relations with Russia and stop the offshoring of American jobs will ever become US policies. By dishonoring the US government’s word and pulling out of the Iran nuclear non-proliferation agreement, an agreement signed by the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran, President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers.

Do Americans Want To Die For Israel? – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 10, 2018

The Saker says that “Americans should ask themselves—Do I want to die for Israel?” https://russia-insider.com/en/americans-should-ask-themselves-do-i-want-die-israel/ri23382

That is the question you should ask your child when they contemplate military “service”.

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/05/07/americans-want-die-israel/

Paul Craig Roberts

Only a few days remain before Trump announces whether he is pulling the US out of the multi-nation agreement with Iran. Iran has kept the agreement. https://www.geopolitica.ru/en/article/message-iran

Even Washington’s vassals—UK, France, Germany—have announced that they are sticking with the agreement.
https://sputniknews.com/world/201805071064213277-france-germany-uk-iran-deal-us-decision/

So where is the pressure on Trump coming from to destroy the carefully negotiated agreement in which Iran agreed to forgo development of nuclear weapons?

It comes from Israel and Israel’s American Fifth Column—the neoconservatives. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump: Is He Stupid or Dangerously Crazy? – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 9, 2018

Days before this fake attack, the Russian Defense Ministry warned that a false flag provocation was in the making.

We mentioned this just a few days ago. Truth from Moscow, lies from Washington. All directed toward you.

Not like the old days when both were lying to US.

https://original.antiwar.com/justin/2018/04/08/trump-is-he-stupid-or-dangerously-crazy/

A child could see through the fake “chemical attack” supposedly launched by Bashar al-Assad just as his troops defeated the jihadists and Trump said he wanted out of Syria. But our President can’t, which raises the question: is he as stupid or stupider than George W. Bush? Or is he crazy?

We are expected to believe that the Assad regime committed a horrific atrocity against mostly women and children at the very moment when Syrian forces have decisively defeated the Islamist rebels and Trump declared he wanted US troops out of Syria. Days before this fake attack, the Russian Defense Ministry warned that a false flag provocation was in the making. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump agrees to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 9, 2018

First thought. Would Hillary have met Kim over over a table rather than the battlefield? What do you think?

https://nypost.com/2018/03/08/north-korean-leader-kim-jong-un-invites-trump-to-meet/

By Joe Tacopino

President Trump has agreed to sit-down with his North Korean nemesis Kim Jong-Un sometime in the next two months to discuss stripping the hermit nation of its nuclear arsenal, it was announced Thursday.

The historic meeting was brokered by the South Korean government, which delivered the invitation to the White House and divulged the details outside the West Wing…

Be seeing you

Trump’s Tariffs are Statism On the March – Jonah Goldberg

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 27, 2018

Exceptional article, especially for a neocon.

Carmakers get tariffs put on cheaper imports then raise their price to just below the tariffed price.

The privileged few make out. You take it on the chin.

https://townhall.com/columnists/jonahgoldberg/2018/01/26/trumps-tariffs-are-statism-on-the-march-n2439835

…Sometimes the government protects certain industries in order to goose employment or in the name of keeping prices low for the people or prices high for the producers (i.e. farmers, favored industries, etc.). But such subsidies not only stifle innovation, they also end up hurting consumers or taxpayers or both.

Trump’s National Defense Strategy Has the Pentagon Popping Champagne | The American Conservative

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 25, 2018

We’ve killed an astonishing number of people.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/trumps-national-defense-strategy-has-the-pentagon-popping-the-champagne/

…The NDS contains several extraordinary statements. Yet none top this one: “Today, we are emerging from a period of strategic atrophy.”

What exactly is this supposed to mean? To atrophy is to waste away. Muscles atrophy from non-use, from too much sitting around and too little exercise. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump’s Pivot to Asia: An Arms Sales Bonanza, An Anti-Peace Trip | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 17, 2017

One of the conditions to being admitted to NATO is the prospective country has to get their military up to snuff. Guess who is happy to help.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/trumps-pivot-to-asia-an-arms-sales-bonanza-an-anti-peace-trip/5617667

President Trump’s 5-country Asia tour has nothing to do with seeking peace anywhere, it has not even to do with diplomacy – it is entirely a warmongering business trip for the Military Industrial Complex. It is amazing that the world doesn’t catch on. Read the rest of this entry »
