  • The Next New Deal? | Barnard College
    downward slide But the deeper causes of both crises lie in the overextension of credit and long term structural problems in the financial markets and the economy According to Weiman policy makers are relearning the lesson of the Depression today They haven t sat idly by and watched the economy collapse as many say the Federal Reserve did at the start of the last one The government has pumped billions into financial markets and bank rescue plans But people are still losing their homes and their jobs in record numbers They aren t buying cars or houses That s proof Weiman says that monetary policies alone can t reverse the country s economy decline The country needs aggressive government spending in infrastructure health care and education I worry that we could be headed for something as dramatic as the Great Depression unless the federal government takes decisive action he frets Because FDR didn t fully embrace the philosophy of British economist John Maynard Keynes who argued that governments could keep people fully employed during tough times by operating at a deficit the government did not take aggressive or decisive enough measures during the New Deal and didn t act until just before and during World War II Private sector investments were not enough For the next 30 years the government became the nation s primary economic manager Under Truman Weiman notes the government institutionalized Keynes philosophy by creating the Full Employment Act which was a commitment to using fiscal policy to stabilize the economy That view of government fell out of fashion in the 1970s especially after Ronald Reagan became president in 1980 notes Weiman Reagan convinced voters that big government wasn t the solution it was the problem and government policy changed dramatically Since then policy makers have turned more to tax cuts and monetary policies interest rate changes to stimulate the economy during downturns rather than deficit financing for social or economic programs The tug of war between the opposing philosophies is still at play today says the economist President Barack Obama is performing a delicate balancing act between the two sides to gain support for an 825 billion economic stimulus package which includes significant cuts a move some Democrats have renounced saying similar tax cuts under President George W Bush didn t sufficiently encourage consumer spending But it s also clear that Obama wants to create New Deal type public investment programs adapted to changing demands He s proposed that the government invest in clean energy as well as infrastructure and health care projects Obama has said his economic stimulus plan will create or save three million to four million jobs He could do something that s very very dramatic believes Weiman No matter what policies should be put in place to insure that no group is excluded from any recovery No plan will succeed if only certain sectors of the economy benefit Will women be left out if too much stimulus money is spent on infrastructure and construction professions dominated largely by men That s why spending in health care and education professions dominated by women will be critical to any plan s success affirms Weiman He adds If the private sector can be reignited you can t assume that will ease poverty We also need other government policies to make sure the benefits are diffused widely Dr Alan Dye Dye also believes major public investment in infrastructure and education is central to any economic recovery plan But that won t be easy with a jaw dropping 1 2 trillion deficit facing the country China helps finance that debt by purchasing U S Treasury bills But the Chinese have to believe the U S is a very good credit risk or that will stop The country has to come up with a plan to pay down that debt and invest in education health care and infrastructure at the same time How that can be done in the real world and what the consequences will be are anything but certain It s a very tricky thing Dye says Whatever steps we take have to be taken with an eye towards productivity to build earnings One area where consequences are very important is the auto industry As someone who has studied the automotive industry for several years Dye points out that if it were to collapse completely which is very unlikely that would make it very difficult for any stimulus plan to work Certainly he says the industry is in trouble and potentially a lot of jobs could be lost but what matters is how much of a hit the industry would take Further says Dye the objective of any government assistance should be to minimize the shock on employment This doesn t mean that companies should be saved under any circumstances Measures could be taken to reduce the impact even if one or more of the big three should have to declare bankruptcy under Chapter 11 Provisions could be made for an orderly reorganization which could include government participation The industry employs about 250 000 people and that number increases to around three million when you include those who make their living serving the car industry in some way often as suppliers of parts or raw materials It s hard to imagine the economic repercussions if a significant portion of those jobs were allowed to disappear So a short term bail out is needed says Dye but continuing to bail out the auto industry long term could have unintended consequences Industry executives could assume the government will step in to rescue them despite their bad business decisions And carmakers have plenty of problems They haven t adopted modern production techniques to increase quality control and prevent costly defects on the assembly line Instead of investing in energy efficient vehicles they ve relied too heavily on sales of gas guzzling SUVs in recent years Too many car dealerships have been established and industry leaders haven t taken the

    to fit in she s thrived and in the process has garnered all kinds of glowing reviews She s a frequent name on media lists of up and coming business leaders In 2006 Advertising Age named the then 37 year old Banikarim as one of 40 Under 40 rising stars in the advertising and marketing world while the business monthly Fast Company selected her to join the Fast Fifty its grouping of the top corporate trailblazers and trendsetters Last year she earned a spot on the New York Post s list of The 50 Most Powerful Women in NYC And Crain s New York Business included her in its own picks of 40 under 40 high achievers citing among other things the fact that in her first two years at Univision Banikarim helped bring in major new advertisers such as Target and Nike and boosted the company s sales revenue by well over 33 million in her first year and 75 million in her second By way of explaining Banikarim s success Ray Rodriguez Univision s president and chief operating officer told Crain s She has a ton of smart focused energy And she puts all the pieces together Putting those pieces together is no easy task As chief marketing officer Banikarim oversees all aspects of Univision s marketing and corporate communications efforts a position that includes everything from big picture strategizing on the company s branding efforts to beefing up research on audience demographics and staging major sales and marketing events for prospective advertisers The job regularly involves travel as well as 10 and 12 hour days which can be a real challenge she admits considering that she also has two young children a 10 year old daughter and an 8 year old son to care for at home It s obviously not easy she said in a recent interview in her office at Univision s midtown Manhattan headquarters There are a lot of things to juggle Then again Banikarim has always liked a good challenge Despite her demanding schedule she thoroughly enjoys her job and likes being part of a company that s still considered somewhat of an up and comer in the major media world even though it has one of the fastest growing audiences in the country along with many of the highest rated programs It s an incredibly important market says Banikarim who notes that the total Hispanic population in the United States now numbers more than 45 million As a relative newcomer herself she likes the fact that Univision is so attuned to immigrant concerns Her parents fled Tehran at the start of the Iranian revolution after her father who worked for a local bank set up by Chase Manhattan now J P Morgan Chase got word that he was about to be arrested The family initially spent a year in Paris and moved to northern California when she was 12 The multilingual executive who speaks Spanish French and Farsi had originally thought she might pursue a career in journalism At Barnard she majored in political science and even while getting her MBA in addition to a master s in international affairs at Columbia she wasn t certain what she wanted to do I wasn t sure the corporate thing was right for me she recalls While Banikarim has worked for several major media companies including Turner Broadcasting and the publishing company Macmillan she says that at heart she s really an entrepreneur Besides launching her own handbag company she also built a thriving marketing consulting business Maryam B Enterprises with a client list that included Time Warner Deutsche Bank and Bacardi Limited Though now back in the corporate world she seems in no danger of losing her entrepreneurial instincts and drive She still has a knack for coming up with fresh ideas something she s glad to say Univision execs have welcomed I think of myself as an entrepreneur in a big organization says Banikarim who adds that much of her career has been about finding ways to do things smarter and better and not being afraid to take risks In 2007 for instance she and her team devised a whole new approach in preparation for the annual high stakes spring upfront event with major advertisers where television networks unveil their upcoming fall lineups and bid to sign up sponsors for their programs Instead of going with a more conventional presentation Banikarim staged something akin to a Broadway show replete with a heart stopping performance by the pop singer Marc Anthony and poignant video testimonials from some of Univision s most loyal viewers The media industry analyst Jack Myer s influential Jack Myers Media Business Report in its Survey of Advertising Executives on Upfront Presentations later ranked Univision s effort the best presentation by any network at the event It s not clear exactly where Banikarim gets her drive though according to her younger sister Susie she s always had a profound curiosity about the world and a passion for getting involved She s always doing something says Susie Banikarim 97 She s in constant motion That was definitely the case at Barnard where Maryam worked for the student run Barnard Bulletin got elected president of her first year class and went on to win the prestigious Truman Scholarship She also served as a student representative to Barnard s board of trustees and worked closely with then president Ellen Futter who became a mentor and still counts as one of her most important role models Coming from a relatively homogenous San Francisco suburb and high school Banikarim remembers being thrilled by the diverse mix of students on campus and all the interesting classes and things to do I was like a kid in a candy store I absolutely loved it she recalls remembering how liberating it was not to feel like the immigrant outsider You could basically be yourself at Barnard It s really where I came into myself Political science department
