What’s new here is somehow Hussman has picked on the idea that corporate profits fall as the federal deficit falls. He stops short of suggesting we need a higher federal deficit, of course.
After all his endless inane out of paradigm raving against federal deficits it might take him a few months to reverse course. 😉
Nor does he mention the well known Levy Profit Equation from maybe 75 years ago that shows same, or Wynne Godley’s work or any of the MMT sources that he no doubt perused regarding sector balances.
