I will be recommending it to many people.

However, I have to say, I am seeing a lot of similarities between your arguments and the arguments of the French politicians written about in A. D. White’s “Fiat Money Inflation in France” (http://mises.org/books/inflationinfranc e.pdf). Obviously the situation is different, but the justification for the recommended policies is shockingly similar. I would think that that similarity was enough for one to consider the long term consequences of policies that provide “an immediate boost to output and employment.”

Such policies would mitigate foreclosures,loosen credit and eventually increase demand. My concern is how the folks on the “hill” will respond.
