Wall Street Journal struggles to deal as Republican tax scam fails to make the economy soar

Bottom of Form

Who could have predicted! The Republican tax law is not sending the economy into the stratosphere, as only partisan Republicans claimed to believe it would do. The Wall Street Journal has all sorts of reasons that might possibly maybe explain why the U.S. economy slowed down in the first quarter, but if you were a true believer in the Republican tax law, well, here’s the bottom line:

Still, the first quarter was when the tax cut took effect, raising the take-home pay of many Americans in addition to sharply reducing corporate taxes. That ought to have boosted consumer spending, but apparently it wasn’t enough to offset the temporary factors weighing on the economy in the first quarter.

That’s a hilarious “ought to have,” since most Americans don’t see an impact on their paychecks and most corporations are turning their giant tax cut into stock buybacks and other means of enriching the already-rich rather than boosting their workers.

Republican tax policies don’t work as advertised, water is wet, and the sun is bright

Fox in the hen house: why interest rates are rising

The Fed is aggressively raising interest rates, although inflation is contained, private debt is already at 150% of GDP, and rising variable rates could push borrowers into insolvency. So what is driving the Fed’s push to “tighten”?On March 31st the Federal Reserve raised its benchmark interest rate for the sixth time in 3 years and signaled its intention to raise rates twice more in 2018, aiming for a fed funds target of 3.5% by 2020. LIBOR (the London Interbank Offered Rate) has risen …

Yet more evidence that Wikipedia is edited by the CIA

Did you know that Vice President Dick Cheney admitted that on 11 September 2001 he, as President George W. Bush’s brief stand-in during the 9/11 attacks that hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, issued an order (and it was carried out) to shoot down United Airlines Flight 93 while it was in the air near Pittsburgh? If what he said at the time was true, then the standard ‘historical’ account of the plane’s having been brought down as a result of action by the passengers, would…

Arizona Republic: Economists Agree With Ducey’s Forecast

On today’s front page, the Arizona Republic reported “Economists Agree With Ducey’s Forecast.” The article details how projections from economists in Arizona and around the country align with those at the core of Governor Doug Ducey’s 20×2020 plan.

The 20×2020 plan gives Arizona teachers a 20 percent raise by 2020 and invests new dollars in Arizona’s public schools — all without raising taxes. Increased state revenues due to our state’s thriving economy will allow more money to reach Arizona’s teachers and classrooms.

Find out what economists have to say about Arizona’s growing economy:

National Economists:

  • Moody’s Analytics: According to the Republic, “Moody’s Analytics estimates personal-income growth in Arizona to average 6 percent this calendar year, which covers half the state’s fiscal 2018 and the first half of fiscal 2019.” On Governor Ducey’s plan, economist Jesse Rogers from Moody’s Analytics in Pennsylvania said, “The state government forecast is reasonable.”

Arizona Economists:

  • Dennis Hoffman, Seidman Institute Director at the W.P. Carey School of Business, Arizona State University: “Hoffman predicts state revenue to grow between 5 and 6 percent in the next few years…Hoffman said a recent revision to federal data that showed stronger job growth toward the end of 2017 has validated the forecast that Arizona’s economy is poised to pick up speed.” According to the Republic, Hoffman said, “‘The economy was indeed doing better than what was thought before.”
  • George Hammond, Economic and Business Research Center Director at the Eller College of Management, University of Arizona: The Republic reported that George Hammond largely agrees with Dennis Hoffman’s economic forecast. “‘My forecast for the state calls for continued strong economic growth in terms of jobs, income and population gains,’ Hammond said.” The Republic notes that Hammond, “said growth should speed up in the next few years,” and “projects personal income growth to range from 5 to 6 percent.”
