A transaction tax on short-term stock trades is needed to prevent algorithmic trading from unduly distorting stock market values. When 60-70% of all trading by volume cares nothing about the actual value & future prospects of the companies being traded, the argument that the pricing of a stock accurately reflects its value becomes a bit less convincing.

Ordinarily I find you one of the best-informed, smartest economics/business bloggers out there, so I am surprised at the way this posting gets bank accounting wrong way round. Deposits, from a bank’s point of view, are liabilities, not assets — they are loans by depositors to the bank, which the bank will have to pay back. Loans, from a bank’s point of view, are assets, though not as risk-free as, say, government bonds because of higher default risk. If the Camp plan actually taxes assets in the bank sense of the term, then it’s true that it isn’t getting at leverage (for that, you’d need to tax loans minus reserves), but it is getting at a rough measure of the biggest, most systemically important institutions.
