    That is your opinion apparently meaning that the only valid context is yours. The proper context is this, we are three years into the Obama Administration and economic growth is lower in 2011 than it was in 2010. We still have a net job loss and unemployment rate much higher than when Obama took office. Waiting for exactly what the right context then is

    I mean like the lion's share of the damage was done in the first few months of Obama's presidency, before he had a chance to halt the slide. I mean like after those first few months the economy has been gradually but steadily improving.

    I have a question .

    What happened to the 1200 people you "had" working for you?

    I'm sure most of the posters on this thread are well aware of how an economy works in a Capitalist nation.
    America is a Capitalist nation is it not , so my guess is that the economy of America works on MONEY, and MONEY CIRCULATION to make profits.

    Of course I might be wrong, please correct me if I am.

    An educated opinion I'll stand behind.

    This only matters if government is the answer because they control the economy. Is that your position?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Again, the context is that the economy was shedding more than half a million jobs a month when Obama took over. The entire financial sector was melting down. There was a very real possibility that we could slide into a full-on depression. That context.

    Everyone of the employees that worked for me created value and worth for themselves. Many were promoted, many went on to open their own businesses, and many still are working for the company.

    They continued to shed jobs after his shovel ready stimulus plan was passed and continue to shed jobs today, 3 years later. How can there be less in the labor force today than three years ago? Don't we have a growing population?

    You are the biggest idealogue on this board, and there's not even a close second.

    If you thought we could recover from the Great Recession in three years then you were seriously deluded and phenomenally ignorant of economics.

    You really don't have a clue and show it. In a private sector economy a leader would have gotten us out of the recession a lot quicker. That recession officially ended in June 2009 thus the economy was growing. There is less growth today than last year, fewer in the work force today, and a rising debt. Guess none of those things bother you
