it must remind many of peter orszag's nyt op ed after his departure last july calling for an extension of the bush tax cuts for the richLawmakers should increase the payroll tax cut to stimulate short-term economic growth and prevent a “lost decade,” former White House advisor Larry Summers argues.
In an op-ed published in Monday’s Washington Post, Summers warns of little economic growth ahead unless new measures are enacted.
First among them is an extension and increase of the payroll tax cut negotiated by President Barack Obama and Congress last year. It would be “premature” to let the two percent payroll tax cut expire as is scheduled at the end of the year and, instead, Summers says it should be hiked to three percent and expanded to employers as well as employees to help stimulate a still-struggling economy.
also, "summers warns of little economic growth ahead unless new measures are enacted:" that's quite an admission, don'tcha think
meanwhile, even struggling students in econ 101 appreciate the toxic effect uncertainty can cast on any economy
Larry Summers: Boost the payroll tax cut - Jennifer Epstein - POLITICO.comAsked last week if it’s an option the administration is considering, White House press secretary Jay Carney’s response was not definitive.
“Obviously there are a lot of ideas that get bandied about, both within the administration and outside,” he said. “This is an idea that’s been around for a long time, has been supported or has seen expressions of support from the business community, from conservative economists and others. But I don’t have any policy announcement to make.”
hey, they've only had two and half years
meanwhile, summers, orszag, romer, goolsbee...
