And your alternative is....mandate higher wages? Hire them as Federal employees? It's hilarious to watch you argue without realizing it that the private sector is actually causing the low wages, not the Federal Spending.
Seriously, it's like you don't even think about what you post.
Except for that thing called World War II. Oops.As a share of gross domestic output, it was the largest fiscal stimulus program ever tried in this country.
I like how your article flat up states tax cuts don't work. FUNNY.
And it's dishonest in what it's saying about the States. It argues that it didn't do anything...but then points out how it effectively let states keep spending at the same rates, thus preventing a reduction in aggregate spending. Failure eh? If keeping aggregate demand at the same level is failure, what is success? Reducing demand?
Apparently these "economists" don't understand the concept of trickle down.Feyrer and Sacerdote say the cost may have been as high as $400,000 per job.
