Dansk Erhvervs Poul Erik Pedersen og hundrevis af andre topchefer kræver politisk indreb

Børsen skriver i dag (papirudgave), at syv ud af ti danske topchefer (ikke bare chefer men TOPchefer – uh!) vil have politikerne til at stimulere økonomien via en vækstpakke. “Dansk Erhverv har meldt sig med krav om en vækstpakke bestående af ufinansierede skattelettelser som en del af en skattereform samt øgede offentlige investeringer og opfordrer […]

Børsen skriver i dag (papirudgave), at syv ud af ti danske topchefer (ikke bare chefer men TOPchefer – uh!) vil have politikerne til at stimulere økonomien via en vækstpakke. “Dansk Erhverv har meldt sig med krav om en vækstpakke bestående af ufinansierede skattelettelser som en del af en skattereform samt øgede offentlige investeringer og opfordrer også til et hurtigt indgreb for at modvirke den voksende kreditklemme.”

I USA har Obama foreslået præcis det samme. Ovre hos Uncle Lew har Michael S. Rozeff givet et svar til Obamas forslag, som alle disse topchefer burde læse:

“The Japanese tried huge public works spending, and it failed to rescue their stagnant economy. That is because the money goes to wasteful, over-priced, and inefficient projects. These projects are pork barrel and subject to politics. They harm the economy by diverting resources into unproductive jobs. They harm the economy by undermining the good ethics that are the basis of any sound economy. The U.S. lobby groups for housing and construction are large and well-known, and they correspond to the Japanese cartels. In both cases, there exists an iron triangle among business, bureaucrats, and politicans that leads to waste and corruption. Tax cuts only lead to increased borrowing and dollar devaluation unless they are matched by cuts in wasteful government programs. The real political work to be done is in taking aim against interest groups and cutting spending for the sake of the general public. The Obama stimulus package does the very opposite.”
