100 Days of Economic Damage

By: Steve Johnson

4/30/2009 - 32 Comments

The Obama team has reached 100 days of power amid a major economic failure and is on track to lead the entire world into a massive inflationary cycle, which will complete destroy the worlds’ monetary system.

The monetary policy of zero percent interest rates that the world is following is the way to completely destroy the value of all paper money.  Why isn’t anyone standing up to this pending disaster? 

Why is it so easy to look back and say we should have stopped the housing bubble by not allowing the Fed to lower interest rates below market rates, yet so hard to see the pending doom that central banks around the world are engaged in? 

Yesterday the Fed kept interest rates on near zero, continuing to flood the market with cheap money.   Cheapening money is only increasing the problem by discouraging investing in production. 

Therefore, production is at a standstill.  Once product supplies run out and liquidation prices run their course, inflation is going to take a sharp turn up and it will be too little and too late to change direction.

Wealth is created with savings and productionThe longer the government holds down the interest rates, the longer they will continue destroying wealth.

GDP Projections

The US GDP shrank by 6.1 in the first quarter of 2009 and the economy is still slowing, yet the governments goals and entire budget is based on a small drop in GDP by the end of the year.  For that to happen, the economy would need to immediately reverse course.   It doesn’t look like the GDP will even be close to the governments’ worse case contraction of 3.3 for the year.

In other news today, Chrysler filed for bankruptcy with another $8 billion in government loans.  The labor union and the government are now the primary shareholders.  This just about guarantees they will never produce a profitable automobile and the government will have to continue to pump money into this organization forever.

Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In discussions of today's economic meltdown and what to do about it, the Federal Reserve is a stealth helicopter: it never shows up on the radar. With the exception of a few esoteric specialists and those Ron Paul Revolutionaries who burst into chants of "Abolish the Fed!" Historian Thomas Woods notes in this important book, the Federal Reserve bears a large part of the blame for the mess we're in. In the first part of "Meltdown," Woods shows how both in theory and in practice, Fed policy fueled an artificial boom and is now leading us to a much larger meltdown.

America Alone

In this, his first major book, Mark Steyn--probably the most widely read, and wittiest, columnist in the English-speaking world--takes on the great poison of the twenty-first century: the anti-Americanism that fuels both Old Europe and radical Islam. America, Steyn argues, will have to stand alone. The world will be divided between America and the rest; and for our sake America had better win.

Day of Reckoning

In Day of Reckoning, Pat Buchanan reveals the true existential crisis of the nation and shows how President Bush's post-9/11 conversion to an ideology of 'democratism' led us to the precipice of strategic disaster abroad and savage division at home. Ideology, writes Buchanan, is a false god that seeks vainly to create a paradise on earth. While free enterprise is good, the worship of a 'free trade' that is destroying the dollar, de-industrializing America, and ending our economic independence, is cult madness.

What Has Government Done to Our Money?

Rothbard gives us an exceptionally clear, detailed description of what money is and how it has come to be manipulated by governments and central bankers into almost worthless inflationary fiat paper currency. He then explains how gold became the most respected and trustworthy currency of choice and the prospect of either hyperinflation or the greatest depression the world has ever seen may be arriving in the very near future.
