Austerity or Infraspending?

Re:  A little interest will cost a lot, Todd MacKay,  05/16/2015

According to the Canadian Tax Federation,  Manitoba must rein in public spending or bond vigilantes will punish the province. Unfortunately, cutting government expenditures at a time of high unemployment reduces private incomes, diminishes tax receipts, increases joblessness, adds to welfare expenses, and thereby pushes governments further into debt. We learned this during the Great Depression, and more recently by austerity programs overseas which have devastated European economies.

There is another option.  After the great financial crisis of 2008, the federal government had no problem creating a $200 billion Extraordinary Financing Framework to bail our commercial lenders without ever having to raise income taxes.  So if the government can lend to big car companies and banks, why can it not also lend to provinces and municipalities on reasonable terms? In fact, well-known constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati is currently suing the Bank of Canada on the grounds that it fails to make low-interest loans to provincial governments though mandated to do so.

Provinces and municipalities should support this lawsuit and make the banking system work for Main Street and not just Bay Street.  The government must renew infrastructure not only to kick-start the economy and put people to work, but also to leave a legacy of public goods for future generations.

1.  Rocco Galati challenges role of Bank of Canada in latest case

The lawyer best known for stopping the Supreme Court appointment of Judge Marc Nadon has turned his sights on the Bank of Canada. Rocco Galati has taken on a case for a group called the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform, or COMER, which wants the central bank to return to the practice of lending [�]
2. Improving Access to Financing and Strengthening Canada's ...

To soften the impact of the crisis, the first phase of Canada�s Economic Action Plan included measures to provide up to $200 billion to support lending to Canadian households and businesses through the Extraordinary Financing Framework.
