What Fiscal Cliff? Obama Planning Another “Tax Cut” Fiscal Stimulus…”This is Keynesian-based Einsteinian madness at its very best.”
by Tyler Durden
Since it would appear that QEternity has ostensibly failed in its main goal of pushing the stock market higher (and mortgage rates lower), the White House seems to be scrambling. Obama administration officials have concluded that the economy, while improved (apparently), is still fragile enough to warrant another bout of stimulus. The same old kitchen sink is being thrown at the problem as they are now resorting to the same fiscal stimulus that has also failed time and time again (as we noted here). As WaPo strawmans reports the White House is discussing the idea of a tax cut that it believes will lift American’s take-home pay and boost a still-struggling economy (citing people familiar with the administration’s thinking). This is Keynesian-based Einsteinian madness at its very best.
