    If you are going to enact a stimulus to shoot AD back to full employment GDP. $150 billion completely undershoots the current gap (assuming the multiplier is 2).

    A $500 billion infrastructure stimulus, with an additional $500 billion in education grants, and another $250 billion + of alternative energy investment all to be released before 2011 might be enough.

    Either go big or go home.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
