"Want you to depend on them for your safety. And it. Never lead to the kind of tremendous growth. And prosperity. That you see in a country like America. The envision centers really come back also to you cheering the White House. Opportunity. Revitalization. Council. Opportunity zones which I guess. Tim Scott played a major role in getting the president signed up and getting a bill through the Congress in your judgment or they actually making an impact because was over eight thousand opportunity zones already. Eight, thousand, seven, hundred, and sixty one to be exact all over the country, and this has resulted from the twenty seventeen tax cuts and jobs act. So that people could invest unrealized capital gains. into. That were designated by each of the governor's each they. As economically deprived areas. and. If they left the money for five years, they get a ten percent detriment in the capital gains they have to pay on their original investment that moves up to fifteen percent. If they leave them for seven years, they don't have to pay any capital gains on the new money realize as a result of the investment if they leave it in for ten years. So it's a tremendous and distant, and it was expected that over the ten year period, it would attract about a hundred billion dollars. Well, in the first two years, it's really tracked seventy five billion dollars. And the C the Council Economic Advisers. That report in August to the president on opportunities on demonstrating that poverty. And they are Tunisians decrease but eleven percent a million people be lifted out of poverty. And just naming an area as a opportunity show increases the housing values by one point, one percent resulting in A. Eleven billion dollar new wealth increase in those areas, those areas where disadvantage people. That's why you don't hear as much criticism now about this only helping the wealthy because those numbers have come out is pretty hard to argue with the fax. And if you combine that with. Where we were in February one of the lowest. african-american on the Lowest Latino unemployment numbers in history. The really are a lot of positive. Under currents that are moving towards. Individuals and families having better launch. That's exactly right and having an economy. And this is something that I think people don't think about having an economy that was so strong. That, it could withstand six months of shutdown. And still be functioning and actually starting to rebound is truly amazing. And if we get rid of the silliness and the partisanship and hoping for failure and trying to do things because other people that fail so that you can get power. Can. You imagine what would happen with our economy and with the lives of all of our people, and that's where we need to get once again. I agree and I think you're personally doing a lot to move in that direction and part of that. Also, if I understand, it has been eliminating a lot of the various regulatory barriers that tied people's Sansa couldn't use commonsense. Yeah. That's probably been much more important even than the tax cuts tax cuts are nice but having a situation where people's entrepeneurship spirit. And Innovation. Can actually manifest because you're not being slammed down by a ton of regulations and bureaucrats. Is What has allowed us to survive this corona virus pandemic? That's going on. There have been new businesses that have cropped up during the pandemic simply because we have removed some any of those regulations if we can continue to keep that the case. The. Back will be just very dramatic, and hopefully after the election, we can make a lot of progress with Kronos, Irish. I think there's been some decreased.
"council economic advisers" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"I'm Christopher Cruz Thiss is Bloomberg Wall Street Week with David Westin from Bloomberg Radio to take us through the economy under President Trump? We convene on our virtual roundtable contributors, Larry Summers, who served under President Clinton as treasure secretary and then as the director. Of the National Economic Council under President Obama and Glenn Hubbard, who served as chairman of the council Economic Advisers under President George W. Bush. So let me start since we're talking out of AA candidate for President Trump on the Republican side, Glenn, we start with you. When you hear the plans that were being told for the second four years will they get us that full employment that President Trump really promised? Well, I think conventions are obviously great Theatre. The president was pointing back to the pre covert world and he could point to some good successes. He did have success with the economy. Unemployment was very low market valuations were very high GDP growth was solid. I think he could well point to the tax cut on Jobs Act on he could point to his regulatory agenda. Having said that there is uncertainty about trade policy and what missing was missing to me was a since war of the future. Hey, talks about make America great again. I'd like to see Make America flourish again. What would it take to get every American to participate and prosper? I think their ideas their on the Republican side, But I wish Maura them had been at the GOP convention. Eso lo really bring you in on the other side of this is that word is what you heard from. Former vice president Biden gonna get full employment either when he's talking about something $3.8 trillion in new taxes. Is that what this economy needs right now? This economy needs a serious program of public investment. And some part of that public investment programme will pay for itself. And some part of that public investment program is rational to finance with debt. Some part of that public investment program probably should be paid for with tax increases, especially when those tax increases would make the economy fairer. Dad would also make the economy more efficient. We don't serve any useful purpose. By failing to collect $500 billion a year, most of it from the highest income people because we don't do a competent job of enforcing the tax law. We could move towards fixing that raised trillion dollars over the next decade from high income people and close tax shelters at the same time. We've got a variety of loopholes and special breaks that divert resources into inefficient uses and cost the government a ton of revenue. A famous carried interest provisions is one example in that regard. Those are candidate for rational tax reform, but at the same time would finance government doing what it needs to do. Time for that. I think there are people who have the idea that caused by envy. We should have tax increases in order to tear down the ridge. I think that would be a mistake. There are people who had the idea that we should have tax increases for the sake of having tax increases or justice a device for reducing the deficit. I think that's a mistake. What should we pay for some portion over time of the Huge public investment We need Yes, I think way we should. And I think that's the spirit in which Vice President Biden has talked about a tax increases so clean. What about it here from Larry that it's a matter of public investment, which really is what we need right now on the Republican side for President, Trump said. Let's cut the capital gains tax will private investment Is that the most efficient way really get investment, or is Larry right? Well, I think public investment is very important. We need a strong infrastructure program, not just physical but also technological. We're seeing that play out before our very eyes. It's hard to disagree with Larry on issues like avoiding tax avoidance. Of course, we should do that. Having said that is Vice President Biden serious about a large tax increase on business and business owners? In a recession or an incipient recovery. We've got very large proposed increases in the corporation tax on individual tax rates and the most radical expansion of the payroll tax not to be used for Social Security. Do you be used for other purposes, So the Biden plan may have been developed at a time and a place but we're not at that time in that place. So while I don't disagree with Larry, it's not really the Biden plant. Okay. So fairly quickly, Larry. More or less yes or no? Do you think Vice President Biden is serious about that $3.8 trillion tax increase? I think Vice President Biden He is serious about a major increase in public investment and paying for an important part of it, though not necessarily all of it. And I think that's the right thing to do. I do not think that it's anybody's intention to impose a major new set of austerity on the current economy. Glenn and I may have a disagreement the business community before the Trump tax cuts thought it would be fantastic at the corporate tax rate cut to 25. Percent. In fact, it was cut to 21%. There were a scent of tax cuts proposed for non corporate businesses that nobody was even asking for. I think we should repeal and replace some of that and use the revenues to push the economy forward for everyone. And I think that is the right thing to do. And that's the spirit of the of the Biden Planas. I understand Larry. I think you get a victory lap this week because over five years ago you wrote the financial times, and I'll quote it. The Fed could inject much needed confidence in the economy today and minimize future risks by announcing and following a strategy of not raising rates until it sees the whites of inflation's eyes as best. I understand that's sort of what J Paul said. This week isn't just more lies exactly what he said. I think, he said two important things. He made clear that the 2% figure was a two sided target. After a decade of being below 2%. It would be okay with him if we're above 2% For a while and we weren't being religious about 2% is the ceiling. That's what I and many others have been advocating for a long time. And he also said that he was going to reject what has been a Fed staff preoccupation for a long time. The Phillips curve idea. That we should stop the party before it gets started by raising rates. When it looks like the economy is going to be really strong and unemployment, it's going to be low and wages. We're going to rise fast. The last last people to be higher or going to be hired, and employers are going to be reaching for less skilled workers and those with some blood on their backgrounds. That we're not gonna cut off the economy's growth when those kinds of things happen until we actually see inflation materialized by those air to welcome welcome and frankly overdue changes in Perspective from the fat and they're things that I've been calling for for half a dozen years in recognition of the fact that our economy is basic problem. Isn't an inflationary gap. It's a deflationary gap where saving succeeds investment and that pushes interest rates too far down. Causes money to flow into liquid assets that then get inflated and caused bubbles on DH risks. Too much sluggishness in the economy. So I think the bad has Moved a substantial distance in the right direction. I think they still got some way to go in terms of recognizing the limits of what they're able to Dio and Putting the right kind of pressure on other policies to pushed a man forward. Well, let's talk about those limits. Exactly. Glenn. Let's assume you agree with Larry. They essentially more or less from better late than never, But same time. Is this the cure for what ails us right now? Because this doesn't get rid of Corona virus. It doesn't get increased productivity. It doesn't get gross going. This story does it? I think it's a It's a good step. I, too, have called for average inflation targeting for some time, but it's not a free lunch, and it does give the Fed room to let the economy run hot. It's a good thing..

"I've already placed ten dollars. In the economy. My deficit click the dollars in? That can now be tried out for the Treasury's here's the really important part of the story. I don't have to. Why would I need to borrow my own? Currency Selling Bonn is not an imperative. It's Detroit they don't need to borrow order to spend already spent the dollars in so I do they so I think there are a couple of different answers one is we used to be on a gold standard when the US was on a gold standard we had what was known as a convertible currency. This used to be a convertible currency. It was convertible on demand into goal. Law Gold is a finite resource. There's only so much in your gold reserves so if you start making lots of these available and your gold reserves are growing then you potentially have problem. People want to convert bees into something that you can run out of gold so what the government would do was to take some of these out of people's hands and them with treasury bonds which were not convertible I had to wait until the bond matured and get your cash back so one reason is a historical legacy of the gold standard and then the other is that treasuries were really important for carrying out monetary policy until fairly recently the Federal Reserve relied on. Us government bonds to conduct. We call open market operations to set interest rates. So this is a really good story to talk about this in my book or listeners could find out on their own just by using the Google machine and learn a little bit more about this but very briefly when Bill Clinton was president the Federal Government's budget moved into surplus for the first time. I leave in my lifetime. Nine hundred ninety eight ninety nine two thousand two thousand one. The federal government's budget surplus now. Democrats celebrated this as a great achievement. A sign of fiscal responsibility. I this was tremendous. The Congressional Budget Office looked at these federal government surpluses and they projected in their annual budget outlook that the government was on track to run surpluses bars. The I could see and that we were going to retire. The national debt it would all be paid off completely gone eliminated. Cya Okay so the Clinton administration is looking at this. Their Council Economic Advisers publishes a report every year called economic report of the President in. That report was a chapter while they were supposed to be a chapter was drafted and it was called a life without debt and they were writing this chapter and plan to include it as this. Wow look at where we're headed right. We're going to run budget. Surpluses pay off the national debt and we will be as a country debt free magnificent until they started writing the chapter and thinking things through and then they realized. Oh we're can pay off the national debt. So they went into panic mode. And so why would they go into panic mode at the thought of retiring all of the national debt? Wouldn't that be great? Well you and your viewers can check this out of the reason that we know about this chapter is because NPR's planet money did a foia request and they got that chapter four stout into the public domain. So that now we can all have a chance to look at it otherwise they pulled it. They buried it. They were not going to publish it because they were so concerned about what it would mean if we ran out of. Us Treasuries if we basically eliminate them so when people talk about paying down the debt or eliminating the dead. It sounds like a good idea because it means you know if I could off all my debt. I'd be happy right. I want to be debt. Free no mortgage debt no card payment or student line gray but if the federal government pays off its dead it means there are no more. Us Treasuries because that's what the national debt is is just the outstanding outstanding stock of government bonds assets people. Hold them there in pensions right there. In portfolios so the Federal Reserve was using treasuries to set interest rates so they would buy and sell treasuries to change the level of reserves in the banking system and thereby set the key policy interest rate. That's a long way of saying without treasuries. The Fed couldn't set interest rates which is basically carrying out mind policy so they panic and they decided to just you know the. Fed does not rely on treasuries to set interest rates in the modern era. We stopped doing that so now to change key policy rate the Fed just announced a new rate and they pay interest on reserve balances if the Fed wants to pay a higher interest rate at announces higher interest rate and that becomes the new interest rate. They WANNA cut rates zero announce that they will begin paying zero on reserve balances. They don't need treasuries to carry out monetary policy as they once. Did they're doing we and so they're still buying treasuries today but there's no use said. Why are we still issue? Why do we still borrow? We don't have to do it for historic we don't have to to protect gold reserves. We don't have to do it to set the overnight interest rate. I'M NOT SAYING THAT. We should eliminate them. I'm just saying that it's a problem that we call it the national debt because it makes anti panic. So how's everyone getting away with this? How how is it that? Whenever a politician stands up and says austerity we have to cut social security. We have people on both sides of the aisle. My saying things things like this with the national debt is a problem. There's a national debt clock that comes to have taken up on websites all over the place and whatnot. Why is it that nobody at principally? I'm looking at Democrats because I feel like it's our responsibility. Who's standing up and waving the flag and saying this is all specter. We don't have to be doing this. Actually know mega tive implications for US having a significantly high national it's meaningless. Why is it from a political perspective that we're letting everybody continue with this misunderstanding of how things work and that there's not some more effort to political reeducation economic reeducation to focus? Start winning some of these. Some of these battles. You're preaching to the choir. LemMe Tell Ya you know. I've had conversations and continue to have conversations most of them. I can't talk about a very generic terms. I was on the hill not too long ago and the good news from my perspective is that there are Democrats who are undergoing rethink and they have reached out and we are having conversations about how to begin to shift the public narrative and to help with the education process and so I feel in many respects hopeful because they see a willingness on the part of some to recognize that the stories that they've been telling our have problems that they could be helpful in terms of providing a better understanding. Sometimes I'll say to people you know it's not what you say but what you don't say so. Just don't volunteer thing is like Oh. And then they're adding to the deficit and they're increasing the debt by say that because when it's your turn right if you end up in the White House and with the Senate and the House you're going want you're going to end up running deficits to and the debt is going to increase while your in charge so you might as well not vilify these things. Now you might as well begin to talk in terms of how would we redeploy that deficit so that it is being used to help the people who most need the help right? Now we've got billion dollar deficits that are largely engineered to people for tell people who listening how we're GONNA inherit those. We don't want to try to eliminate them and give it to US territory and all that kind of stuff. But we can re-jigger the budget again ways that put the resources where there can do the most good and so we may continue to run trillion and a couple of. I Dunno you know what the economy will call for in the future what it can sustain but we need to be talking in those terms. It's hard for any politician to go first on this. Because who? Who's going to ally with you. If you step out first and start talking in ways that are such as ignificant departure from the way that everybody else in Congress talks the way all pundit class talks and you know it would take a certain Gravitas a lot of courage to go out there and try to reshape public understanding so anyway that I think it's GonNa take you know guy that we both know pretty well says change doesn't come from the top down always comes from the bottom up so I believe that I think that ultimately we're gonNA force that narrative to Chang. Just going to be the people who went at next politician after this pandemic is over and our politicians start talking about the need to go after social security or why we can't have programs we can't afford things. I think we need groundswell people to say no no. Don't do that. We could. We can afford it as I understand enough to know that your budget doesn't work like ours so I'm not going to accept these talking points and I got to be from us. Thank you for that political education to the extent that it's from the bottom up. There are a lot of people. Listening to this podcast. That are going to be much more able to have those arguments because of your willingness to join US go two days. I really do appreciate it. Can You let folks who are listening or watching? No were they can hear more from you where they can read or find your book anything else they should know about your outfit. Yeah yeah sure you can. I mean I'm on twitter at Stephanie. Kelton and if you WANNA see a quick oppy of it is coming out June ninth so you can find it You can pre-order available for preorder the deficit. I'm going to say the name in case people are only listening to the podcast version. Thank you thank you thank you. Yes thank you so much okay. Great Thank You. I appreciate it.

"But I talked to her shortly after the primary. Because I was interested in all these democratic candidates running on Medicare for all, and she even then sort of very shortly after she had become the official democratic nominee was clearly more interested in talking about how Republicans want to try to take away your healthcare and all the the downfalls of the GOP's healthcare plans, then sort of continuing to focus on Medicare for all not to mean that. I think she's, she doesn't support it anymore, but the emphasis is much different. I think when you're talking to a general election electorate versus the democratic primary voters and actually Medicare for all has become a big publican sort of message point. Yeah, Donald Trump had that. I think you guys talked about this recently that that crazy op Ed about how Democrats want to turn American Venezuela by giving everybody healthcare socialism, right. Was the council economic advisers put out this report, right? And they even they quoted our colleague, Sarah, cliff, as an example of someone who argues that a single payer system could reduce administrative costs, and they said that now use the same argument about farming. Wang, and it led to famine, mound known for his affinity for efficient healthcare. It did make me wonder what the Chinese healthcare system was like. I don't know the. Also don't know the answer to that is tragic. So that's what will be after the midterms, we're going to do a deep dive into Chinese healthcare in the fifties. So one thing that I remember from a little while ago is that NC Pelosi started talking about a culture of corruption in Washington, which it was a callback to sort of one of their big two thousand six talking points. And frankly, the culture of corruption seems a lot worse. Now, the two thousand six interational of corruption is almost quaint. So has this been playing or Democrats talk about this? Yeah, absolutely. It was kind of interesting because this is something that Pelosi has been on for awhile and certainly was a thing in in two thousand six as well. But a few months ago, I talked to congressman John Sarbanes of Maryland who has kind of been spearheading the House, Democrats, democracy task force. So he's kind of the guy that has really sort of been at least kind of putting some of this stuff into into policy and and bills that haven't really had a chance yet in in the Republic. Can lead congress. But yeah, I mean, Democrats are going in hard on an anti-corruption message because it's popular. I mean, that's kind of like if if we remember back to the twenty sixteen election, Donald Trump also ran on an anti-corruption message. His catchphrase was in continues to be drain. The swamp which Pelosi pointed out was like something that Democrats were saying back in two thousand six. So Democrats have a pretty detailed plan for what they're going to do if they do take back the house and one of the things that we'd like to point out, you know, there's all this speculation right now a couple of weeks out before the election. About how much you know if Democrats win, is it going to be a.

And my question is. Can you see the deep state dropping in a low GDP number and then piling on immediately with its the tariffs? It's the tax cuts failing. It's sugar high economy is spent and this is what really is happening with all the Trump economics, and it's starting to starting to break up conveniently seven days before the election. Well, these numbers would come from the department of labor. Your labor statistics. And the US council economic advisers. These are Trump people in there now, you're right. To be wary of career left wing deep staters in there. I look I wouldn't put anything past these people you could conjure up any scenario you wanted. And I I would bet eight out of ten up. My would tell you. I think are possible. So given who these people are given what they think is at stake here. So if you wanna tell me, if you have an idea that the GDP numbers come out next Friday might be say monkey with, but it's increasingly tough to use that word and get away with it and might have been Jimmy a might be. Well, reworked and so forth to make it look like we're about to fall off the clipper, at least that this recovery is just hit a wall. I don't know how effective it would be. But I don't I wouldn't I wouldn't sit here and utilize literally suggest to you that it couldn't it couldn't happen. An particularly the areas you mentioned they would love to be able to discredit Trump's tax cuts. They would love to be able. Two. Discredit a whole bunch of the tariffs.

They've tried October surprise in October. They've tried them in September. They've thrown everything they've got at Trump, including during the campaign, the access Hollywood video and that didn't work. Now, he's out there calling the porn star.

Double crossing. Backstabbing woman who has tried to destroy the guy with her third rate lawyer. She's not just an innocent ordinary everyday woman that Trump decided to call a name. She is a woman who attempted to ruin him. But for these Liberal Democrats, these people in the media to act like people don't talk this way. Presidents don't come on. People talk this way, or this is what what I resent about this the idea that they are clean and pure is the wind driven snow, and they don't think this way. They don't talk this way.

They make fun of people. I mean. Their their comedy has become literal hate.

Griping about Trump's using the word horseface and ask yourself if that media reporter never talk that way and the answer but Russia, these people are president, and he is and this is beneath the dignity of the presidency. Well, I know they look at it. And think of it that way my point is they can try all day long. That's not going to separate Trump from his voters some of his voters. He backed up. There's so much going on here focusing. They don't need to distract everybody with that stuff. But he did there are also going to they're not gonna give up trying to link Donald Trump to the murder of the of the journalist in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Jamal kashogi. They're still working on that. But I think they're frustrated to no end that nothing they do works. And now I have a story I have to print. I haven't had the chance to print it. Yep. Just cleared the transom here. It's about Trump's approval numbers are probably much better and much higher than anybody on the left and the media wants to admit, he's.
