Over at CentreRight, I have set out briefly the mistake presently being made by policymakers in the US, which I expect to be mirrored in the UK later this morning. For example:
Injecting more new money, whether through QE or credit expansion in excess of real savings, will not “fight recession”. It will merely delay and worsen the eventual downturn, because injecting new money is bound to shift activity from sustainable economic action to action supported only by that new money.
Sooner or later, the mainstream economic paradigm must shift to accept the importance of time and hence a robust capital theory. Everyone’s prosperity depends upon it.
