● Proposes a government-run bank EVEN THOUGH it was government intervention that created the 2008 economic crisis. (Report| Videos)
Can you imagine this: The Miami-Dade commissioners or local politicians running a bank with OUR money!
Khavari proposes a bank run by government as a silver bullet to fix all our problems! Through this bank, Khavari says he will lower interest rates, reduce property taxes, create jobs, etc. But we already learned that these apparent benevolent policies promoted by big-government politicians is what led to the 2008 economic meltdown: To supposedly make homes more affordable for lower- and middle-income Americans, government created the government-sponsored enterprises of Fannie-Mae and Freddie Mac and implemented the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) signed into law by Jimmy Carter and then expanded by Bill Clinton forcing banks to give loans to borrowers with poor credit ratings. Financial firms bought huge packages of loans from Fannie & Freddie because they were guaranteed by government and this “absolved lenders, mortgage bundlers and investors of any concern over the obvious risk. As Bloomberg reported: “It is a classic case of socializing the risk while privatizing the profit.”” When this artificial bubble exploded and thousands of subprime borrowers could no longer pay their mortgages, foreclosures increased dramatically which led to the mortgage meltdown and the financial crisis.
These leftist “do-good” policies continue to keep the economy down. Democrats recently passed the financial “reform” law (which Obama was happy to sign) to supposedly protect the customers. But the reality is that free-checking accounts are disappearing as a consequence of this law: “The so-called financial “reform” bill that passed Congress — the Dodd-Frank Act — is wiping out many free checking accounts, since many banks can’t afford its red tape unless they either charge a monthly fee, or require a minimum balance of well over $1,000.”
Khavari proposes more government when voters want less government. No wonder he only received 0.1% of the vote in last year’s gubernatorial race.
|● Proposes environmental economics BUT even his peers call it “exaggerated and unsupported claims” and “conclusions based on assertion” where he dismisses other factors or the consequences of his proposals.
Economic Geography, a professional peer-reviewed journal, analyzed Khavari’s book Environomics: The Economics of Environmentally Safe Prosperity where Khavari argues that present forms of economic growth degrade the environment and where he seeks to promote “environmentally friendly” economic growth.
