Perhaps intimidated by the steady stream of security threats around the White House (two more in the past week), Obama on Nov. 24 unwisely dumped Defense Secretary Hagel without having a suitable replacement ready. Hagel had objected to the Syria policy demanded by the Kerry-Rice-Power humanitarian bomber group, who insist that the main enemy remains Assad, not the ISIS terrorist congeries. The rational US approach would be rather to work with Assad, Iran, and Russia against ISIS, while forcing Erdogan of Turkey to cooperate in opposing the terrorists – or else. Once Hagel had been ousted, a pre-Thanksgiving power play was launched to give warmonger Michele Flournoy the Pentagon post. Flournoy is deeply associated with the Center for a New American Security, the think tank in the orbit of Gen. David Petraeus, who continues to function as the focal point for a political comeback — possibly in authoritarian form — by the hated neocon faction. Push-back against Flournoy quickly emerged in a number of quarters, including this web site. Flournoy was forced to drop out of contention on Tuesday, Nov. 25, just after this broadcast was pre-recorded. It is not known how Flournoy was stopped, but her professed desire to spend more time with her family can safely be considered spurious. There is now grave and immediate danger that the Allen-Petraeus clique will initiate bombing and decapitation attacks against the Assad government. As for the Pentagon post, the controlled media are touting Hagel’s deputy Robert O. Work (also of CNAS), Defense Department veteran Ashton Carter, Homeland Security boss Jeh Johnson, and the Saudi-linked former Mississippi Governor and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus.

The world economy is now harvesting the bitter fruits of the neoliberals’ killer austerity. The main central banks are now falling back on the discredited Quantitative Easing, meaning massive purchase of bankrupt and toxic derivatives, with the hope of saving the zombie banks from another round of bankruptcy. But six years of Quantitative Easing have already failed to produce a recovery in the US, where stagnation continues.
Instead of pouring more central bank credit down the derivatives rat-hole, we should now implement the anti-deflation, anti-depression ideas proposed in 1931 by Wilhelm Lautenbach of the German Finance Ministry and Wladimir S. Woytinsky of the German trade unions. In today’s US terms, their call would translate into a credit stimulus of $5 trillion in Fed credit used to buy 0% coupon, 100-year infrastructure bonds to be issued by states, counties, cities, and regional authorities.

Large-scale shovel-ready projects would begin at once. No tax increases, and no borrowing from China, would be involved. The short-term goal would be the creation of 30 million new productive jobs, giving the US full employment for the first time since 1945. Further credit stimulus would be used to refinance the Exim Bank for a campaign of high-technology exports, and to freeze the burden of $1.3 trillion in student loans by refinancing these loans at 0%. (These measures can be easily adapted to other economies worldwide.) Monetary stimulus has been tried and has failed (QE), fiscal stimulus has been tried and has failed (the Pelosi stimulus and supplemental laws of 2009), and is threatening. Credit stimulus for tangible physical commodity production — not bailouts — is the only way out, and it should start immediately.
