4.0 out of 5 stars Paul Krugman David Smick On Global Economic Crisis October 25, 2008
Paul Krugman the 2008 Nobel Economics winner speaks to Charlie Rose about the present global crisis. Krugman believes a major mistake was made in not rescuing Lehman Brothers. He says that this led to the global loss of confidence that made world financial markets plummet. He says that what we need now is a return to the kind of Capitalism we had before the Reagan revolution removed regulation from the financial markets. Krugman says the crisis is already a Recession and that it will be a deep and long one. He believes a Depression has been avoided. He seems somewhat critical of Henry Paulson and says the crisis was too slowly reacted to, though he approves of much of what Paulson- Bernanke have done. Krugman suggests fiscal stimulus will be necessary. He makes an interesting point in which he explains why the capitolization of the banks may not work. The banks may choose to hold the money instead of lending it and invest it elsewhere later for higher returns.
Smick also believes there must be a return to greater regulation. He speaks about the need for changing the way the regulation is done. He explains the way the banks made up these financial packages as 'salads' in which they pooled all kinds of loans and then sliced them up into little pieces. One bad piece spoiled all. He too gives no miracle cure- all to a situation which is going to get worse before it gets better.
