NEC Chairman Larry Kudlow Discusses Sustainability of U.S. Economic Growth…

National Economic Council Chairman Larry Kudlow appeared on Fox News to discuss the latest GDP figures from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).

Keep in mind when contemplating ‘sustainable growth’, all of the current underlying economic activity is during the phase of transition between Wall Street policy (last 30 years) and Main Street policy (Trump).  We are in the space between the two economic approaches; two engines – SEE HERE.


How will we know when the two economic engines have crossed paths?  There is an easy answer:  Under MAGAnomic Main Street policies inflation is disconnected from FED monetary policy.  In the real economy inflation is connected to wage rates.  When inflation and wage rates reach growth equity (over two quarters), that’s when the Main Street economic engine will have caught and passed Wall Street. We’re close.  Watch.

          That will be interesting; Senate passed it unanimously so 2/3 to override is possible. House more of a coin toss.

            Yes, veto possible. But then the Senate Slimes will have to face the light of an issue gone public. Out of the smoke-filled back-rooms and into the sunlight. More than a few will suffer for the exposure.

        Subject to Presidential veto. The Senate is anti American and we need to target every one of them that’s up for re-election and vote them out.

            I agree. Government should do nothing 90% of the time. Capitalists keep the country and economy in order. We have ups and downs but businessmen keep the ball rolling.

            Government no-accounts are just a continuous drain on everyone else.

        • GB Bari says:

          If the bill passed both House and Senate by unanimous or near-unanimous votes, they can easily override a veto. On the surface it appears to be a stab in the Presidents back, unless he already knows about it and quietly signaled approval or no opposition.


        • Kaco says:

          Can it be vetoed if it’s passed unanimously???

          “The White House has not publicly taken a position on the so-called miscellaneous tariff bill, which has now passed both the Senate and the House of Representatives unanimously.”


      • Concerned Virginian says:

        “with no debate” and “unanimously passed”
        WHERE the HELL was The Turtle on this one? I’ll tell you where: doing another UniParty/DEEPSTATE deal behind the scenes to YET AGAIN pull an “et tu, Brutus?” stab in the back to President Trump.
        Maybe if The Turtle had his WIFE with him, he’d maybe have been able to show some spine. But the leopard cannot change his spots.

        I smell a rat. this is a CNBC article. I *might* believe that it passed the senate unanimously. But the house as well? This is an orchestrated effort to give the appearance that POTUS Trump is a renegade who does not have the support of the rest of the govt. Remember, there are trillions at stake.

          This intention to undermine PDJT pressure on China trade negotiation. These jack*sses, so called Senators, are a tool of China. We need to kick them out before they will do China bidding. These same *ssholes would cry out Russia collusion but indeed they are China collusion. China is much worse than Russia.

        There are no references within the article as to the House Bill or Senate Bill number in order to look it up and read what is in it; the only searchable references is to a bill the House passed in January, which the article now refers to as a miscellaneous tariff bill. Does anyone have the HB# or SB#, and if so, have these bills gone into a committee for reconciliation?

        Could this be another msm clickbait article?

        Passed both houses unanimously with a few minor differences. Since it is international, I hope it’s non-binding theater.

            It’s confusing, at least to me,

            because what they passed appears to be an amendment to the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, that seems to extend the expiration date of the 1985 Omnibus bill from its original expiration date of January 2026 to April 2026 and then adds certain tariff reductions for plastic shoes worth not more than $6.50 a pair and certain unidentifiable tariff reduction extensions;

            and the question, now, is, does this need to go into a reconciliation committee? and,

            didn’t President Trump let the Senate, the world in fact, know that he will not be signing any more omnibus bills?


          • Tiana says:

            This is the bill on tariffs that was approved by house and in the last few days by the senate (HR 4318)…

            This article explains a little about the process…

            This was passed in May 2016… supposedly to help American Businesses…

            This briefly explains the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS)…

            This is the HTS with all its chapters of tariffs… chapter 99 has all the new changes from HR 4318…
            THEN CLICK ON CHAPTER 99

            I am no expert on chemicals, so I don’t know how legit it is to make all of them duty free because our businesses supposedly need them, and we are not making them in the USA…

            but I am only on page 93 of 291… and I came across all these items which are mostly duty/tariff free:
            Shoes, baseballs, volleyballs, auto/truck/tractor/bicycle parts, grass shears, spraybottle nozzles, aspirin, D-mannose, garden figurines/plaques, golf and shopping bags, woven cloth, yarn, loudspeaker parts, walkie-talkies, lamps, camcorders, video monitors, small electric kitchen appliances (i.e. coffee makers, juicers, grills, etc.), lenses for cameras, batteries, laboratory equipment, child carriers, manicure/pedicure items and sets, rubber floor mats, rattan webbing, tramway parts for Seattle, electric radiobroadcast receivers, refracting telescopes, power weaving machines… oh, and do we really need to import tens of millions of gallons of ethanol tariff free?…

            So other countries are allowed to dump these articles in the US with no or minimal tariffs, which makes it impossible for US made articles to compete… especially if they are produced in smaller businesses…

            Unfortunately the house and senate voted unanimously on the bill, which will make it impossible to be vetoed by the President…

            I don’t think that the house representatives even read it… probably just relied on a summary by lyin ryan… and Mr. Gaetz actually co-sponsored it… 😦

    Here is the reality our President, Larry and our Killers know. If shrinking the trade deficit by $50 billion dollars added 1.06% to our 2nd Quarter real GDP, just imagine what will happen when we cut that deficit of $817 billion dollars in half.

    That would add 4% to 5% each quarter. If our President gets 3% on his own policies, add 4% to 5%, we are headed for uncharted territories.

    Your talking about 7% to 8% real GDP each quarter. Our Lion 🦁 was on Sean Hannity’s radio show this afternoon. It will be aired again at 9 pm on his TV show. Our President said himself that we can get to 8% or 9% and payoff our $21 trillion dollar deficit pretty quickly.

    WINNING like we saw today feels so good 😊. Our President deserved this in the worst way. WE deplorables delivered for him and our country.

    Enjoy 😉 it Treepers!

    With the recent trade deal between the US and the EU, along with promising negotiations with Mexico, I think the next set of GDP numbers will prove that not only is the American economy “sustainable,” it’s unstoppable.

    At last I found an article that explains the soybean snafu. China may be in trouble come September, and our economy could be just fine. Our economy as in Main Street.

    Who knew soybeans would turn into an entire Econ lesson plan?

    Good article. But there are so many, is it correct? I’ve read (several) articles that tell different soybean/main street trade stories.

    The senators who voted to cut Chinese tariffs are on the Chinese payroll. It’s that simple. Traitors to us all, the enemy within, about whom we warned by our founding fathers. We The People are to ferret them out, the source of their wealth publicized. Their ignorance is incredible, those that pay them now will come after them tomorrow.

    Have to laugh at these business analysts I’ve heard today saying that the numbers were so good because foreign governments were trying to hurry up their financial activities before the tariffs kick in. Can’t possibly be that the threat of tariffs or the tariffs themselves might actually be a cause of the positive economic activity, could it? Free-trade dogma is being shown for what it is: dogma.

    I was with a mortgage broker helping my older son decipher their BS this afternoon, and he started talking “fed rate increases…” I looked at him and said, “don’t bet your points on that because Trump won’t let it happen.” He then said the magic words “anticipating recession” as some sort of justification for historical (prior) fed rate increases. I then reminded him about the actual old school “inflation” dogma, and how Trump’s increases in productivity will destroy the legacy scheme (soon to be known as the Krugman Paradox). Needless to say it whizzed right over him…

    So, it’s deja vu right here straight outta SD’s keyboard…

    To wit: “Under MAGAnomic Main Street policies inflation is disconnected from FED monetary policy. ”

    Talking to the unwashed babbling CNBC is truly like stepping out of a time machine from the future. The downside, of course, is that Yvette Mimieux is never there.

    I don’t care, I LOVE Larry Kudlow.

    What I like most about him is he had the DAMN SENSE to get behind the President when it was apparent that what he was doing, was working. Kudlow isn’t a fan of tariffs, but the president did it, and it worked, and Kudlow supports what works.

    He has his purpose, and he does a damn good job at it. I love how positive he is. He’s a f******* patriot, that’s all their is to it, Kudlow loves this country and he’s fighting as hard as he can for it. What a wonderful person, we need more people like him in politics.

    To put it another way:

    There is a domestic market, and an international market.

    Finance is global, and makes money wherever it is invested.
