The godfather of fiscal stimulus is English economist John Maynard Keynes. Nixon sure was right when he said, "We're all Keynsians now." We're Keynsians even when we don't need to be. We may not even be in a recession yet. When the economy slumps, the job of reviving it falls primarily to monetary policy and the Federal Reserve. It's true that Ben Bernanke's Fed is taking its sweet time about cutting rates. But that should change soon. Let's let the Fed do its job. If it fails, then Congress can attempt a stimulus. If this weren't an election year, would Congress be so eager to do "something"?
