John Kenneth Galbraith

Jewish World Review August 12, 2008 / 11 Menachem-Av 5768

The Galbraith Effect?

By Thomas Sowell

Many years ago, when I was a college student, I took a course from John Kenneth Galbraith.

On the first day of class, Professor Galbraith gave a brilliant opening lecture, after which the students gave him a standing ovation.

Galbraith kept on giving brilliant opening lectures the whole semester. But, instead of standing ovations, there were now dwindling numbers of students and some of them got up and walked out in the middle of his lectures.

Galbraith never got beyond the glittering generalities that marked his first lecture. After a while, the students got tired of not getting any real substance.

Senator Barack Obama's campaign this year reminds me very much of that course from Professor Galbraith. Many people were ecstatic during the early primaries, as each state's voters heard his glittering generalities for the first time.

The media (***Generalization) loved the novelty of a black candidate with a real chance to become president, (*** NOT if Sowell or the RJ can Stop it) and his left-wing vision of the world was largely their vision as well. There was a veritable media honeymoon for Obama.

There was outrage in the mainstream media when ABC anchor man Charles Gibson asked Obama a serious question about the economic effects of a capital gains tax. Who interrupts honeymooners to talk economics?

The fact that Senator Obama did not have a very coherent answer made things worse— for Charles Gibson. Since Obama can do no wrong in the eyes of many of his supporters, they resented Gibson's having asked him such a question.

The question, incidentally was why Senator Obama was advocating a higher capital gains tax rate, when experience had shown that the government typically collected more revenue from a lower capital gains tax rate than from a higher rate.

Senator Obama acted as if he had never thought about it that way. He probably hadn't. He is a politician, not an economist.

Politically, what matters to the left-wing base that Obama has been playing to for decades is sticking it to "the rich."

What effect that has on the tax revenues received by the government is secondary, at best.

What effect a higher capital gains tax rate will have on the economy today and on people's pensions in later years is a question that is not even on Senator Obama's radar screen.

Economists may say that higher capital gains tax rates can translate into lower levels of economic activity and fewer jobs, but Obama will leave that kind of analysis to the economists. He is in politics, and what matters politically is what wins votes right here and right now.

The kind of talk that won the votes— and the hearts— of the left-wing base of the Democratic Party during the primaries may not be enough to carry the day with voters in the general election. So Senator Obama has been changing his tune or, as he puts it, "refining" his message.

This was not the kind of "change" that the true believers among Obama's supporters were expecting. So there has been some wavering among the faithful and some ups and downs in the polls.

Despite an impressive political machine and a huge image makeover this year to turn a decades-long, divisive grievance-promoting activist into someone who is supposed to unite us all and lead us into the promised land of "change," little glimpses of the truth keep coming out.

The elitist sneers at people who believe in religion and who own guns, the Americans who don't speak foreign languages and the views of the "typical white person," are all like rays of light that show through the cracks in Obama's carefully crafted image.

The overwhelming votes for Obama in some virtually all-white states show that many Americans are ready to move beyond race.

But Obama himself wants to have it both ways, by attributing racist notions to the McCain camp that has never made race an issue.

The problem with clever people is that they don't know when to stop being clever— and Senator Obama is a very clever man, perhaps "too clever by half" as the British say.

But maybe he can't keep getting by with glittering generalities, any more than Galbraith could.

Imagine! THIS coming from a guy Sowell that NEVER HAS EVER GIVEN AN EXAMPLE ON ANYTHING HE WRITES. NOW he switches gears to Anti-Obama stuff. And, because Sowell is Black he writes Anti-Black stuff and can get away with it. Sowell HATES the Media Those that Use Labels Usually - get that? - Usually Brag about being a Conservative. BS THAT is the sort of CRAP that the RJ uses, and may be WHY they selected this articles. Sowell will believe the WORSE about him, True of NOT. The Rich do NOT pay into Sec Sec and Medicare ON EVER CENT THEY EARN AS YOU AND I DO. I consider Sowell an "elitist". Is THIS "sneering" I think so/ THIS FROM A GUY - SOWELL THAT MAKES HIS LIVING DOING "glittering generalities,"

8-4-08 = HERE IS THE LETTER TO THE EDITOR THAT HSmith wrote that was Misleading, and they the RJ took it out of the archives. So, here it is - I added the Highlighting for EASY Reading. KJ === Hubble Smith’s article from July 26, titled Reverse Mortgage Leaves Borrower Stunned and Stuck, is misleading because he relies on sources who don’t understand how reverse mortgages work.

Mr. Lancaster, the borrower, received a federally-insured reverse mortgage, which enabled him to pay off an existing mortgage of $54,000 and to establish a $60,000 line of credit, which he has used to fund retirement needs.

The property does not,

as the article misstates,

"essentially belong to the lender."

The lender has a lien as in any other loan.

This is no different in a reverse mortgage than in a traditional mortgage.

The balance due on Mr. Lancaster’s loan, $170,000 according to the article, would include the funds advanced to pay-off his prior mortgage, funds drawn down from the line of credit, an upfront mortgage insurance premium paid to HUD, customary and usual closing costs, and an origination fee on the reverse mortgage, plus accrued interest and ongoing mortgage insurance premiums.

Under the FHA-insured federal reverse mortgage program,

while the balance due may be $170,000,

if Mr. Lancaster sells the home,

he will only be responsible for paying back an amount equal to the current market sales price that he is able to obtain, even if that is only $130,000.

The lender would recoup its loss from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).

That's a benefit of the $2,600 in mortgage insurance premium that he paid to FHA.

The Realtor quoted in the story states that Mr. Lancaster paid interest of $50,000 to $60,000 in just two years, which he labels “insane,” yet the lender who made the loan points out that the interest rate was 5.5%, which amounts to $7,000 a year.

This source is highly misinformed about reverse mortgages. It would be helpful if the reporter would follow-up with knowledgeable individuals who could help analyze the case study presented so the correct facts could be reported.

One of the first things the RJ SHOULD DO IS –

Why don’t they?


The RJ wants to CONTROL – issues – Pro’s and Con’s



JOHN L. SMITH: Plea unmistakable: Get involved in problem of youth gun violence

*** = Ken’s comments.

Undersheriff Rod Jett must moonlight as a mind reader.

As he began Tuesday morning's news conference on the recent increase in gun violence near local schools, Jett acknowledged one of the biggest challenges with addressing the complex community issue: the cynical sense that little can be done about it.

"I didn't want this to be just another press conference," Jett said.

Just another press conference is about what I expected, all anyone could have reasonably expected, but that's not what I heard. Surrounded by many of his top officers, and flanked by Clark County School District Superintendent Walt Rulffes and representatives of the North Las Vegas Police Department, Henderson Police Department and CCSD Police Department, Jett implored residents to focus on this issue. I heard frustration in Jett's voice as he departed from the usual "tough cop" rhetoric and instead made an emotional plea for assistance to the community at large.

Metro has assigned 30 additional officers to address the violence issue with another 20 scheduled to begin next week, said Jett, speaking on behalf of Sheriff Doug Gillespie, who was in Washington, D.C. Speculation to the contrary, Jett added that he was satisfied Metro had enough investigators in its street gang unit to do the job. The undersheriff also took time to remind the media that -- no matter how baggy the pants of the perpetrator -- it's not helpful to broad-brush teen violence as "gang-related."

The focus of the news conference ranged from stick-and-whistle police work to the root causes of the violence,

and I couldn't help but think how much the department has changed over the years.

Under Sheriff Ralph Lamb and his successor, Sheriff John Moran,

there would have been little talk about parental responsibility, after-school programs and cops building bridges with at-risk youth.

Reporters would have heard about not tolerating the hoodlum element and getting tough on the street thugs.

On Tuesday, Jett implored parents to engage their children, pull bedroom inspections, monitor their MySpace accounts. In short, to take nothing they do or say for granted.

He also called on long-distance fathers to "reconnect" with their sons. Although Jett said his request was "no commentary on your parenting skills," who was he trying to kid? As a general rule, fathers who don't watch after their children usually watch them go bad from a lack of discipline, guidance and love.

*** BS.

So, the JSmith Rule is – “discipline, guidance and love.” your kids, and they will be good citizens.

He also put the local gang-banger subculture on notice. His language was professional, but I got the feeling that now would be a good time for some wayward teens to break from street life.

Jett also attempted to move beyond the traditional rhetoric by making a plea to individuals and companies throughout the community. If anyone out there is in a position to help address the issue, this is the right time to step up.

"This is going to have to be a communitywide effort," he said.

*** WHEN is the RJ going to do that?

For his part, Rulffes noted that none of the recent violence was on school property -- "I often talk about how safe schools are" -- and chimed in about the importance of parental involvement and having enough after-school activities in place to reduce the potential for problems.

But in a society that's loath to invest in junior high sports and longer school days, he must know the odds of improving the system are long.

There's an overriding truth that's emerging from the latest series. It's this: The bullets are just as deadly whether you live in Summerlin or Green Valley, West Las Vegas or the Red Rock Country Club. Contrary to popular legend, they're not limited to the valley's tough, poor, ethnic neighborhoods.

Although the undersheriff lauded Metro's efforts at everything from boxing programs to gang intervention,

I find myself angered by the buck-passing that has gone on in this community when it comes to investing in the futures of all our youth. Cops are supposed to be cops, not social workers, surrogate parents, camp counselors and child psychologists.

*** When have YOU or the RJ written a policy that would work?

But every year police officers and schoolteachers are asked to do more because parents, and society generally, do less and less.

*** Parents and society is NOT THE ONLY ONES to Blame.

We can't cure this malady.

*** So, THAT is the NEW RJ Policy?

We can't cure this malady. “

But we can treat it by never quitting on our children, never accepting this insanity as a reality of big city life and never pretending that the bullets fly only in those "other neighborhoods."

*** Hey, John,

go back up to the TOP of YOUR articles

and reread what YOU wrote –

Under Sheriff Ralph Lamb and his successor, Sheriff John Moran,

there would have been little talk about parental responsibility, after-school programs and cops building bridges with at-risk youth.

Reporters would have heard about not tolerating the hoodlum element and getting tough on the street thugs.

We didn’t have the shooting then.

So, WHAT changed?

YOU probably don’t read the comments below, but YOU SHOULD.

GEORGE wrote on February 27, 2008 04:11 AM: School spending, hours, and activities were lower in the previous generation but youth violence was lower than in the present generation. They can spend more money on the schools but

it will not change the levels of violence as long as the culture outside the schools continues to promote violence.

lvhunter wrote on February 27, 2008 03:02 AM: The people that will be frequenting the new shooting range are the responsible gun owners, not the punk kids causing all the trouble around our schools. They won't go near an organized shooting range because their guns are all stolen or purchased illegally on the streets of this "fine" city.

Home burglaries happen most commonly during the hours immediately after school lets out. You can almost bet that these are the same punks that are fighting and shooting around the schools.

I'd venture to bet that none of these worthless little punks are from families that are actively involved in shooting sports of any kind, whether hunting, trap or skeet shooting.

No, more likely they come from dysfunctional families who couldn't care less what their kids are doing in their after-school hours.

Gun laws can do nothing to contain the illegal availability of guns, it requires parental involvement, gun owners securing their firearms against theft and the police actively searching for and prosecuting those people committing the burglaries and selling these weapons to kids on the street. I've been told by kids that in some areas of town guns are easier to find than dope.

Just last week the RJ printed a story about the low priority of home burglaries and the poor rate of catching the people involved. Isn't there a direct correlation with that issue and the teen shootings?

*** The RJ printed – on their front page –

about cops NOT investigating Stolen Cars.

Result = LV leads nation in Stolen Cars.

And doesn't anyone find it curious that none of these minority kids doing the shooting are being charged with federal hate crimes over these events?

*** OR is the RJ suggesting the Fed’s investigate it?


Maybe making a federal crime out of these situations might act as more of a deterrent. OF course, these shooters weren't white, so how could it be a hate crime??

Statistics show this would be just to politically incorrect!

CIA faces criminal probe over tapes
Federal prosecutor to lead inquiry into videos' destruction
Article Last Updated: 01/02/2008 11:56:33 PM CST

WASHINGTON - Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Wednesday that the Justice Department has elevated its inquiry into the destruction of CIA interrogation videotapes to a formal criminal investigation headed by a career federal prosecutor.

The announcement is the first indication investigators have reached a preliminary conclusion that CIA officers, possibly along with other government officials, might have committed crimes in their handling of the tapes, which recorded the interrogations in 2002 of two operatives with al-Qaida and were destroyed in 2005.

Mukasey assigned John Durham, a veteran federal prosecutor from Connecticut, to lead the criminal inquiry in tandem with the FBI.

The appointment of a prosecutor from outside Washington was an unusual move, and it suggested Mukasey wanted to give the investigation the appearance of an extra measure of independence, after complaints from lawmakers in both parties that Mukasey's predecessor,

Alberto Gonzales, had allowed politics to influence the Justice Department's judgment in criminal cases.
