Re: Fixing the Roof While it's Raining......

Does anyone ever ask if we should raise taxes? The time to raise taxes is when the economy is booming; not now when plunging into recession. I think it depends who you raise them on. Note that the huge windfall, generated by Trump tax cuts, didn't happen; the US instead ran record deficits. Of cour...

Re: The Coronavirus and the EU

What I am suggesting is for those southern countries to pool their means to solve their common problems, without waiting for any assistance from the northern countries. For instance, by issuing Southern European Bonds exclusively for their own benefit. Of course these southern countries would then ...

Re: Pandemic

No country gives and has given more aid to more countries in more forms for a longer time than the US. Had it not been for Marshall Plan soft loans provided by the US after the Second World War western (non-Soviet) Europe could neither have undetrtaken its post-WW2 reconstruction nor risen so swift...
