The Fed Funds rate is near zero. T-bills were going for less than 0% recently. Monetary policy is exhausted. A fiscal stimulus is required, yet the party of business seems to think that only deregulation and tax cuts will solve the problem.
Just as Bush v. Gore shattered the myth that conservatives had some kind of lock on authentic jurisprudence, I hope this economic collapse at least teaches us that capitalists often want to destroy capitalism, and not necessarily always employ all tools to fix the economy.
