Just Say No To State & Local Bailouts

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, June 4, 2020

Why is the HEROES bailout so much greater than the states’ losses? Simple: State governments would likely use a large part of the bailout money to make up for shortfalls in their funds for state government pensions. In April, Illinois Senate Democrats, for example, asked Congress for a bailout of over $40 billion, $10 billion of which would go the state pension fund.

The Casualness Of Federal Government Spending

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Sunday, May 24, 2020

Larry Summers disappoints. One upsetting fact is that a number of well-known economists seem to casually favor such huge spending without considering the details or effects. And even though one economist, former Clinton and Obama adviser Larry Summers, has expressed concern about the bad effects, he favored the CARES Act anyway and appears to favor Pelosi’s bill.
