  5. Thank you for the mention. Have a nice week!

  6. Buffett’s solution for the deficit is so obvious that its comical that we don’t use it. In all seriousness, if we held our representatives responsible like that, what would be the negative?

  7. Some would argue that such a rule is a problem in economic downturns. In 2008 taxes were probably down alot and at the same time public spending increased because of increased unemployment. It would certainly be hard to stimulate the economy “back to normal” under such a rule (which is desirable if ure a keynesian).

    But something needs to be done thats for sure.. The longer this continues the harder the needed adjustment will be.

  8. The problem as I see it is that many politicans are shortsighted. They do act rational because they get increased votes by increasing debt (and putting the cost on future generations).

    In Sweden we learned of our financial crise in the early 1990s and created rules of maximum deficit and maximum debt.

  9. Hi Defensiven,

    I agree that Buffett’s rule would be a problem in downturns. I think his response was sort of a half-joke-but-containing-some-truth sort of reply. With the debt and deficit at such high levels, declaring that it can’t go above such a tiny percentage of GDP would make it impossible for anyone to get re-elected for years. Such a rule would have to be put in with phases, and there would have to be some flexibility to allow drastic action in cases of economic catastrophe, but that are bound in scope.

    There’s a useful concept there, and it’s not a brand new idea. Putting certain hard limits that result in legal inability to re-run for office may be a good idea, as long as those hard limits are reasonable.
