Below are the notes I made in preparation for that segment. They reflect my concern about the failure of the Obama administration to deliver a well-targeted fiscal stimulus and a coherent bank bailout plan. Juxtaposed against the continued deterioration of the global economic environment, this failure does not bode well for the markets.&nbsp; To view segment, click here or go to:<br /> <a href="http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=1032414845&play=1">http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=1032414845&amp;play=1</a>.</p>Tue, 17 Feb 2009 00:00:00 GMThttp://www.ftpress.com/blogs/Dow-6000&WT.rss_f=AuthorBlog&WT.rss_a=Dow-6000&WT.rss_ev=aBlog :: Overreact, Overthinkhttp://www.ftpress.com/blogs/Overreact-Overthink&WT.rss_f=AuthorBlog&WT.rss_a=Overreact-Overthink&WT.rss_ev=a<p>The Obama Administration is overthinking the current recession because, in a panic, its economic team sees no light at the end of the recessionary tunnel. This is despite the fact automatic stabilizers such as falling energy prices, falling home prices, falling interest rates, and diminished wage pressures are already beginning to reinvigorate the economy. Accordingly, the Journal's editorial is correct that the Obama fiscal stimulus package is way overdone. The only fiscal stimuli that should be considered are ones that can get right into the pipeline through the rest of 2009 and ones that stabilize the housing market.</p>Mon, 09 Feb 2009 00:00:00 GMThttp://www.ftpress.com/blogs/Overreact-Overthink&WT.rss_f=AuthorBlog&WT.rss_a=Overreact-Overthink&WT.rss_ev=aBlog :: The Big Banghttp://www.ftpress.com/blogs/The-Big-Bang&WT.rss_f=AuthorBlog&WT.rss_a=The-Big-Bang&WT.rss_ev=a<p><br /> This week, we can all look forward to the &quot;Big Bang.&quot; This is the eagerly anticipated range of measures the Obama administration is going to announce to solve the credit crisis and provide relief to homeowners facing foreclosure. </p>Mon, 02 Feb 2009 00:00:00 GMThttp://www.ftpress.com/blogs/The-Big-Bang&WT.rss_f=AuthorBlog&WT.rss_a=The-Big-Bang&WT.rss_ev=aBlog :: As the World Turns (Down)http://www.ftpress.com/blogs/As-the-World-Turns-Down&WT.rss_f=AuthorBlog&WT.rss_a=As-the-World-Turns-Down&WT.rss_ev=a<p>The stock market remains in a funk, and the deity help us if the Dow's support level of 8000 is breached.
