    You know what worries me? This is what Kudlow said as the Great Recession was becoming visible:

    December 2007: ‘The pessimistas were wrong. It’s not going to happen… The Bush boom is alive and well. It’s finishing up its sixth consecutive year with more to come.’ --- Larry Kudlow

    On tariffs, Kudlow defends his boss, whose tariffs are a $1,000 a year tax on American families that is also distorting farming and manufacturing.
    Kudlow forecasting recessions is like Stephen A. Smith predicting NBA champions.

    Being a Republican economist means you never have to say you're sorry for your wrong predictions in the past.

    That's correct. So what?

    But hey...if you prefer the CPI, here's that data:

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    That's true. While I can note liberal economists admitting they got stuff wrong, I never read one admission from many conservative economists that they got it wrong when they predicted disaster if the Fed used monetary policy and Obama used fiscal policy to improve the economy. They predicted high interest rates, higher unemployment, hyperinflation and a 'debasement' of the dollar. All 100% wrong.

    Let me understand your reasoning, such as it is: The Dems won the House in 2018 and took power in 2019. The Reps still have the WH and the Senate. No Democratic initiatives were able to get past the Senate or WH.

    So, according to you, the mere fact that the Dems won the House -- with no subsequent policies, is enough to lower the economy. It just couldn't possibly be that the Republican policies, namely the tax-cuts and regulation cuts, were duds that had no positive effect on the economy -- and the Trump tariffs are a drag on the economy -- nah.

    I have no idea why anyone invested any faith in anything Larry Kudlow has ever said. He’s a creature of cable TV.

    As for Navarro, he’s a complete idiot.

    Nonsense. He only hires the best people.

    On Peter Navarro.
