Imagine a team of doctors who think more poison is the solution to poisoning. That's precisely how government has managed the economic downturn. The market is trying to correct the distortions, even as government makes things even worse.
If permanent depression is not what the Obama team seeks, it is doing everything possible to bring one about in any case.
