Just how bad is the economy? A FreedomWorks activist sounds off.

I received an excellent email this morning from a FreedomWorks activist in response to a call to action that was sent yesterday regarding the massive stimulus package currently working its way through Congress. While we don't normally post emails from activists, over the last few weeks I've received literally hundreds of great responses, all with messages and ideas that I think others would find interesting.

Deflation: The Good and the Bad

West Virginia economist George Selgin has an article posted on The American Conservative website on deflation.  He analyzes the effects and types of deflation in a way that’s both easy to read and understand.  Some of the recent worries over deflation have been based on the “sticky” wage argument.  Selgin responds,

CALL FOR TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY REGARDING THE NEGOTIATION PROCESS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SO-CALLED STIMULUS PACKAGE

Cick here to download PDF We, the undersigned organizations representing millions of taxpayers, small businesses, families, senior citizens and shareholders believe that transparency and accountability are of the utmost importance both in the negotiation and likely implementation process of the massive spending package Congressional leaders and President Barack Obama seek to enact in the next few days under the guise of “economic stimulus.”

FreedomWorks Activist Addresses House Financial Services Committee

Last Tuesday, Robin Staudt, a FreedomWorks activist from Orange County, NC, appeared before the House Financial Services Committee to speak as a taxpayer who was paying their mortgage on time, despite the current economic downturn, and who opposed further bailouts or government meddling in the housing industry.  Robin’s story was a compelling first hand account of someone doing the right thing and not asking for a handout.

Geithner Should Read Mises

In his speech on the new bailout strategy yesterday, Treasury Secretary Geithner stressed the complexity of the current situation in our financial markets.  Later in his testimony before the Senate, he said he hadn’t heard any good ideas yet on how to value assets without market prices, which is a critical part of his plan to purchase bad assets from banks.  He’s right about how complex the market in securities is – or any large market in any good for that matter, but he fails to take the next logical step to conclude that price calculation without a market is impossible.

Obama Should Channel Harding, Not FDR

In the first half of last century two presidents inherited recessionary economies from their predecessors. Both campaigned on smaller government, and both blamed the profligate ways of the previous president for their economic problems. One ended the recession in less than three years; the other lengthened it by seven. One responded with laissez-faire capitalism; the other with unprecedented government expansion. Scholars rank one among the worst presidents ever; the other they rank as one of the best. These two men are Warren Harding and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

One More-and Big-Reason to Oppose the Stimulus

If you thought Tom Daschle’s healthcare plans would be gone with his resignation, think again.  He’s given us one more reason to oppose the stimulus.  It creates a new bureaucracy that will make sure your doctor is doing what the government deems appropriate.  This policy is right out of Daschle’s book on healthcare, Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.

Dangers of the Stimulus

Gary Wolfram, a professor at Hillsdale College, has a great article in Human Events today.  The article argues against the stimulus package on various grounds including the speed with which it's being passed, the size, and the negative effects that it will have on the economy.  He describes "crowding out" in the third to the last paragraph:
