Economics 101
 
Debt is Good

Hey #Ignoramuses  repeat after Professor Krugman: "Debt is Good." Now that didn't hurt too much.

Certainly the inverse is true: No Debt is Bad. This is why the Balanced Budget Amendment and the #Ignoramii  who support it are so #Idiotic. Yes there are times when we can and should balance the Federal budget as President Clinton v1.0 did (and Reagan never did), but there are also times when we should certainly run a budget deficit such as when we are recovering from a Great Recession (caused by #Ignoramuse  on Wall Street). This is what President Obama did over the howls of the republicans in congress, and he saved our country and economy.

What is the tell? How do we know when is a good time to run a deficit? Well interest rates are one important indicator. 

As Professor Krugman points out, if interest rates are low, then perhaps the Economic Gawds are telling you to borrow some money and fix the damn highways (I (PPKFP) am a bit sensitive on this topic because a huge pothole swallowed up one of my previous cars):

"One answer is that issuing debt is a way to pay for useful things, and we should do more of that when the price is right. The United States suffers from obvious deficiencies in roads, rails, water systems and more; meanwhile, the federal government can borrow at historically low interest rates. So this is a very good time to be borrowing and investing in the future, and a very bad time for what has actually happened: an unprecedented decline in public construction spending adjusted for population growth and inflation."

Indeed if the interest rates are 0%, i.e. you can borrow money for free, then perhaps you should take the money. This isn't #RocketScience  people. If a person offers you $1000 at 0% interest, please take the money.

Let me repeat: If I can borrow at 0% interest, then I dont have a debt problem, period, full stop, end of story, OTay?

Professor Krugman suggests an even stronger statement: If interest rates are exceptionally low, then we should borrow more money. The markets are telling, nay ordering, us to borrow more money. It is idiotic not to borrow more money when interest rates are 0%.

We should borrow money to invest into our collective futures ensuring future gains that will pay for our investment. That is how business works.

We borrow and stimulate the economy until interest rates (and inflation) go up, at that point when debt is more expensive and our economy is overheating (with bountiful tax revenue), then we can start paying off our debts.

It is that simple; it is basic Economics 101, which is far beyond the capacity of republican #Ignormauses  like Rand Paul Ryan to understand:

"Not only were governments that listened to the fiscal scolds kicking the economy when it was down, prolonging the slump; not only were they slashing public investment at the very moment bond investors were practically pleading with them to spend more; they may have been setting us up for future crises.

And the ironic thing is that these foolish policies, and all the human suffering they created, were sold with appeals to prudence and fiscal responsibility."

This is incredible. View this
for the essential truth:the political system, and the Democrats, have given up on half the states in the union, including the poorest, the most badly governed, and some of the most corrupt or systemically biased against democracy. This neglect is at the root of America's problems and to rectify this, ot at least fight for it, is the only way out of our problems. Bernie makes an incredible point that 577,000 Louisianans are STILL without health care and that's the way the political leadership in this "red" state (whose Governor is a presidential candidate) want it and have set it up.
Bern the red out!
