Let's Have a War! Jack Up the Dow Jones!


The week's most sanguine commentary on Iran surely comes from Jonathan Hoenig, the clownish fund manager who has the audacity not only to call himself a libertarian but also to come from my alma mater. On Monday's episode of "Your World with Neil Cavuto," Hoenig delved into his knowledge of economics and philosophy to come up with a sure-fire plan for economic good times.

I think when it comes to Iran the problem is we haven't been forceful enough. Frankly, if you want to see the Dow go up, let's get the bombers in the air and neutralize this Iranian threat. We've gone to the negotiating table, we've danced around with these people. That's not going to help this country nor this stock market.
