Feldstein: Holy S*&#!

Wednesday, February 20, 2008 | 01:41 PM

Shorter Martin Feldstein:

-More Fed regulation of financial institutions is needed;

-The  national fall in house prices is unprecedented ;

-The biggest risk is paralysis of the credit markets.

-Any recession will last longer and be more painful than past downturns;

-Fed will not be able to end the recession as it did previously by turning off tight monetary policy.

Amazing how some people who you think have an ideological rigidity can surprise you sometimes . . .

Comments

On the ground events have a way of changing attitudes like nothing else. Ben with his study of the Great Depression will be no better prepared because events are so different this time that old solutions no longer fit the bill, pun intended.
