Has the Economy Peaked?

To read the financial pages these days, you might believe that's so. James Pethokoukis thinks not, and reminds us that we've heard similar sorts of gloomy forecasting before before.

Weak Dollar and The Myth of Cheap American Exports

BY

Question: Isn't a weak dollar really good for exporting American goods? Answer: Some people (a few manufacturing lobbyists and some politicians) argue that the cheap dollar improves American exports and that we should not overly worry about the dollar’s decline. That’s wrong. Improved export competitiveness from a weakened currency is not a net gain for the U.S. economy. Of course a weaker dollar helps specific export industries (particularly those that are labor intensive or are based on natural resource extraction), but pricing on most manufacturing inputs is global.

Coalition Forms to Oppose Flood Insurance Plan

BY Lilla Zuill

A coalition of environmentalists, consumer advocates and insurers has formed to oppose proposed legislation that would expand a federal flood insurance scheme. The measure would add coverage for wind damage, which the coalition says could prove costly for taxpayers and send the wrong message about developing environmentally-sensitive, catastrophe-prone areas.

Socially Awkward?

No doubt there are a lot of folks who're true believers in the OpenSocial idea, but Google's support of the OpenSocial principles, which say that participating companies should open and align their web 2.0 services in such a way that 1) developers can write a single application that will work cross-platform and 2) users would be able to port their information from one platform to the next. This sounds great!

Understanding Policy Options for the Mortgage Crisis

For many people, getting their heads around all the information regarding the current situation in the sub-prime mortgage industry has been an ordeal.  Talking heads on television throw around numbers seemingly pulled from the air, others show the harsher side of failed loans and the families who have to leave behind their homes, and above it all stand politicians with myriad solutions and bills to what is a tough problem with few nice" solutions.

For the Children! Still!

Over at Reason, Ron Bailey responds to the oft-employed environmentalist argument that whatever expensive, restrictive regulation they're arguing for at a given time is justified because "we owe it to future generations." That sounds nice, but the reality of the argument is far less pleasant.  As Bailey says:

Hillary Clinton wants Congress to put up $30 billion to prop up investors and others who can't made bets on the housing market and can't afford their mortgages. Meanwhile, she's reiterating her call for a five-year freeze on subprime interest rates, an idea with serious potential detriment.
