Washington Post blogger supports Pollin’s “Plan B for Economic Recovery”

Robert Pollin

A recent proposal by Robert Pollin, economics and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute, calls for having the federal government create strong incentives for both lending by banks to small business and for businesses to seek loans. He says currently the private credit markets are locked up, especially for small businesses. Pollin’s proposal uses federal loan guarantees to boost bank lending and a tax on excess reserves held by banks. (Washington Post, 9/28/10)
