Regarding David Malpass's op-ed ("Markets and the Dollar," Jan. 14), I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to see an economist take issue with the Fed lowering interest rates in these times of high inflation as well as the relentless printing of U.S. dollars, and its subsequent devaluation. While we're at it, could we please make a token effort at balancing our fiscal budget? Perhaps then we'll be real "conservative Republicans" instead of the "radical Republicans" who have been "governing" these last seven years. Doesn't anyone on the Bush economic team care what kind of currency and country their kids and grandkids will inherit? If not, please tell me where they are planning to relocate when the bottom drops out.
