Maybe it's time for the Washington crowd to understand that investing in US health care is part of investing in and improving American infrastructure.
Central banks around the world have been injecting liquidity into global financial markets to prevent an international credit collapse.
The credit crisis is reflected in much economic data: world milk prices are at all time highs, the US mortagage industry is languishing in the doldrums, and the worldwide gap between the haves and have-nots continues to increase geometrically and unabated.
Economists need to provide more analysis of these phenomena in terms of ordinary people around the globe.
Free market advocates and capitalists, who would seem naturally adverse to such corporate-statist intervention in markets, seem to be silently applauding by the sidelines.
Economic analysts need to balance their output: include more microeconomic global impact studies and commentaries. How do these broader economic trends influence not merely global markets, but ordinary people in India, Malaysia, the United States, etc.
