“.. Mr. Romney’s language echoed that of the “liquidationists” of the 1930s – who argued against doing anything to mitigate the Great Depression.
Until recently, the verdict on liquidationism seemed clear: it has been rejected and ridiculed not just by liberals and Keynesians but by conservatives too – including none other than Milton Friedman.
“Aggressive monetary policy can reduce the depth of a recession,” declared the George W. Bush administration in its 2004 Economic Report of the President.
And the author of that report, Harvard’s N. Gregory Mankiw, has actually advocated a much more aggressive Fed policy than the one announced last week.
Now Mr. Mankiw is allegedly a Romney adviser — but the candidate’s position on economic policy is evidently being dictated by extremists who warn that any effort to fight this slump will turn us into Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe I tell you.
Oh, and what about Mr. Romney’s ideas for “creating wealth”?
The Romney economic “plan” offers no specifics about what he would actually do.
The thrust of it, however, is that what America needs is less environmental protection and lower taxes on the wealthy.
(cont:..is romney following the key-plan..?..
