  1. I love Steve Moore but he missed a great opportunity to explain to Reich that the reason the economy performed so well in the mid-1990s under higher income and capital gain tax rates than those now in effect is because we had a relatively stable dollar. With stable money comes greater levels of investment which of course leads to the creation of jobs and prosperity. Moore mentioned job creation but didn't credit dollar policy as the key contributor.
