NPR: Maybe a slow economy is just what we need!

posted at 1:21 pm on April 27, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Old and busted: The economy is picking up steam under Obama and that’s great news.  New hotness: The economy is slow … and that’s great news!  After this morning’s GDP report from the Department of Commerce, NPR offered the counterfactual headline you’d only see during a Democratic administration:

 

Wait, someone at NPR must have thought later.  We can’t admit that the economy is slow at 2.2% GDP, even though everyone else already knows it.  When readers click on the link, the argument magically changes to this:

Scott Neuman offers this defense of slow-growth policies:

Growth rates have been modest at best compared with the 4-plus percent growth in the years well before the U.S. began slouching toward its worst post-World War II recession.

On Friday, the government reported that the economy grew at a 2.2 percent pace in the first quarter, down from the 3 percent rate at the end of 2011. The Federal Reserve this week said it expects growth to “remain moderate over coming quarters and then to pick up gradually.”

Common sense says high growth rates are good and slower, more modest ones are not so good. But is that always the case? After all, the “irrational exuberance” of the early 2000s helped bring on the recession as people borrowed and spent their way to prosperity.

Actually, it wasn’t irrational exuberance of growth that Alan Greenspan criticized in that period; it was irrational exuberance in the stock markets that concerned him.  That did cause people to use their homes like ATM machines, and fueled growth in that period unhealthily, but that was created by a deliberate distortion in lending markets, not by the economic growth itself.

Most of the economists Neuman quotes disagree with him, saying that slow growth combined with high unemployment is unhealthy — and wouldn’t become healthy until unemployment went below 6%, at least.  In most years, that would just be common sense.  In an election year with a Democratic incumbent in the White House, apparently the government-subsidized media feels more free to indulge counterfactual flights of fancy. I can’t imagine why …

Rush/Sean are listened to by people who can only parrot talking points like DEMOCRAT BAD, REPUBLICAN GOOD.

Hence why your pea little brains can’t process the point of this article.

Toyota Prius performance actually improves after sitting in a garage for five years.

I hope everybody saw the story where Miami-Dade government essentially bought nearly 300 Prius hybrids and then forgot about them for five years. They now have nearly 300 zero mileage vehicles that have gone to rust sitting in the Miami heat.

This, friends, is why we need to take government at all levels back by holding our public officials accountable. Seriously, how does any government “lose” millions of dollars of vehicles? This goes beyond bad stewardship.

When exactly was Obama’s boom?

George W. Bush gave us 6 of 8 years with below 5% unemployment and a stable participation rate.

Obama’s unemployment numbers are half-driven by a plunging participation rate and over 8% unemployment even after that.

You dare speak of stability? You’re the one who is unstable.

NEWSFLASH: This is not slow growth; this is not even no growth.

Adjusted for the real inflation rate (when you add back in such “luxury” items as food and fuel) America’s GDP has been SHRINKING every quarter for the past two years.

And per capita GDP is falling even faster. That is not good for anyone.

Or, to be perfectly accurate, I should say that’s only good for an incredibly tiny handful of people. And they all live in Washington, D.C.

Yep, Obama spent almost a trillion dollars to keep unemployment under 7%, growth the economy at 5%/year and he delivered on that promise.

10% unemployment, 1-2% growth… good enough for government work.

Oh, and 8 YEARS of insanity? So the 2000-2002 Period when the Democrats controlled the Senate; insanity?

the 2006-2008 period when Democrats controlled the House, the Senate, and ALL LEGISLATION THAT WENT THROUGH CONGRESS… “INSANITY”?

Oh, I’m sorry I forgot.. Congress means nothing, the President controls everything… until it’s Obama who couldn’t do anything with even half of congress not controlled by his party. How does that work again?

Do we need to stop blaming bush for the 2006-2008 period?
