    CLR, total balance sheet increased by $5 billion in 2014! Your post is
    decidedly one side.

    "when the world production is going down at the rate of 5-6 MM barrels/day."

    The most laughable comment of the year!

    Glitch, prudence tells producers to reduce spending when
    a commodity prices drops.

    After all, it is just the opposite when prices increase.

    My Dear Mr Kramer, you seem ill tempered! Did you have a rested
    night?

    For someone you do not like, you spring to his every defense when
    he is opposed..

    If it was a hyperbole, then he badly needs a speech writer to properly
    convey his work..This man, has an extended history of distorting the
    truth..The means justifies the end.

    Much of Krugman's speeches and text, are pro-spending, pro big government and assailing anyone whom rises in opposition. He has been
    wong so many times, on so many issues, I would allow only his opinions
    in a public square.

    He is in the vanguard of promoting and advancing the Socshevik causes
    and agenda.

    Again, I urge all liberal to examine Pres Harding's action in correcting
    a massive deficit and in restoring the economy's health in short order..

    Good Morning to you, Mr Kramer! "Krugman finally admits that too much debt threatens financial stability."

    Well, indeed for him that is intellectual progress..He has been on a half
    decade crusade against budget reductions, claiming the false and misleading title of austerity..He is an interloper for spending
    (governmental units) when either the economy is in a recession or tepid has growth.

    "Paul Krugman: I’ll turn deficit and debt hawk once we’re out of this depression, but not now."

    He thinks we are still in a depression? This is why he is no economist but
    just another writer for the Times.

    Krugman, like most liberals (sovshevikes) do not care about debt but
    increasing the power and programs of governmental units..Most liberals
    do not bother with history either, as it impedes their progressiveness.

    Examine President Warren Harding's dealings with a massive federal budget deficit...This does not require either a high IQ nor a baccalaureate
    but the willingness to make the necessary sacrifices..This remedial action is wholly unacceptable to the political strategy of the left..Their first rule,
    never, never undermine your base!

    I do share one thing in common with this man, his love of cats.

    Conditional Sales are now a days unheard of by mortgage "bankers."

    In fact, conditional sales are transfers of property or title without debt.

    Both inflation and deflation have assets and liabilities..To make a "case"
    for one without the other simply exposes a bias.

    You say deflation induces mattress money and why would inflation not
    produce the same, as consumers switch to lower priced products?

    Price discovery, is a function of the market place irrespective of conditions.

    Sticky is Krugmanism, which I choose not to use.

    "causes debt to self-amortize in real terms through the inflation element of the interest rate (which makes debt safer to underwrite and, thereby, lowers real interest rates)"

    You must believe in the free lunch program..One may pay back a
    mortgage with cheaper money but it requires more and more cheaper
    money..Inflation, is a costs inflicted upon every productive worker
    and retiree..Sorry, despite your expectations, one gets nothing for
    nothing.

    Debt is secured based not upon market conditions but the worthiness
    of the borrower! And have you forgotten the 15% yields on the long
    bond during the Carter administration?

    "enables the government effectively to procure goods and services at their marginal cost rather than average cost by tapping excess capacity before prices rise,"

    There are no incentives for any governmental units to be efficient..This is
    evident by the fact, that the federal government unit has increased it's
    debt year after year, since 1832, with an exception or two.

    Since they have mandates; life long jobs; no market competition and
    unlimited police powers, their incentive to be productive and efficient
    are lacking in almost every government unit..To suggest otherwise, is to
    debase empirical facts.

    " matches the age of money to its informational content" Mr Kramer, please enlightened me!

    Thank you for your replies.

    Mr Kramer, my entire reply was deleted because I stuck the wrong
    key!! I have do this before.

    I do not have the time again to restate my post..I disagree with much
    of what you stated.

    WDC = Washington District of Columbia. And house mortgage is not the
    instrument of Conditional Sales, unless it is an untypical transaction.

    Mr Kramer, more on the issue of debt: Hear are estimates from the CBO,
    which may or not be accurate...As you can attest, there are numerous
    unpleasant issues with debt accumulations.

    " As federal debt climbs, the government will need to issue more
    Treasury securities to cover the gap between outlays and revenues. If
    demand for Treasuries were to remain constant, this glut of supply would
    push bond prices down and yields up, raising the cost of borrowing in the
    private sector. Over the long-run, increased federal governmentborrowing
    would crowd out private investment, leading to a lower capital stock and
    lower output. The CBO estimates that when the deficit goes up by one
    dollar, national saving falls by 57 cents and foreign capital inflows rise by
    24 cents (as higher interest rates attract foreign capital flows), leaving a net decline of 33 cents in investment in the long-run."

    Does anyone remember the debate several years ago, whether the US
    military could fight a two front war?

    The question should now be, whether the USA has the economic
    resources to fund a major war?

    Mr Kramer, why does Krugman imply that the mere act of
    debt reduction would produce such unwanted effects? (deflation &
    depression) (Krugmanism)

    Why is deflation a scourge, whereas inflation is entertained?

    Debt is a liability whether domestic or foreign..Would a credit rating
    company also departmentalize debt because it is domestic?

    Would a house mortgage also not be considered debt because it is
    owe it to ourselves?

    Would state unfunded liabilities also not be considered debt because it
    is owe it to ourselves?

    If the federal governmental unit defaults, would not all debt holders
    suffer equally?

    Does not the government (WDC) grow spending through debt spending?
