    Actually the facts alone are quite telling and make this political. Obama had his emergency stimulus plan passed immediately to control unemployment and we all see how that has worked. The Administration is taking victory laps today for the job creation but ignoring the total results. They made it political today and someone has to point out the falacy of their claims.

    I would love to give him credit but when you have an 842 billion stimulus plan that generates govt. jobs instead of really promoting the private sector I cannot do that. Job growth is meager at best and never in our history has so much been spent to generate so little.

    The optimal choice would have been nearly double the size, and more infrastructure laden.

    What are these "total results" (bold)?
    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.

    As many have pointed out, we are no where near to a budget that isn't loosing money and 300k in jobs is a drop in the bucket. Yes its good we aren't loosing even more jobs but hardly a reason to declare victory.

    Total results include the total labor force, total unemployed, total discouraged, and the make up of the jobs created

    The lower limit of where personal wealth really is. The true value is somewhere between GNP and PPR. But of course, I shouldn't have to explain to you why government expenditures aren't entirely efficient.

    Most certainly, fiscal and monetary stimulus have had only a positive impact on financial and employment markets.
    Yeah, if you think that trying to blow up another bubble is a good idea.

    Incorrect. Those are just categories, where as results would be categorical data within a specific constraint(i.e. time). More effort is needed.

    Read the site and get an analysis of the numbers. The total results include numbers and you cannot ignore the total unemployment, breakdown of those numbers by age and by industry, the discouraged and why.

    Obviously your book smart attitude ignored basic research ability and if you spent more time looking at actual data instead of what economists tell you, you might gain some credibility.

    And you do not have to explain efficiency to me. However, you should disclose that while bureaucratic institutions are statically more efficient, there are instances where "stabilization" policies have shown greater dynamic efficiency (i.e. zero bound monetary policy vs deflation inducing lending aka high spreads).



    Yeah, if you think that trying to blow up another bubble is a good idea.
    There are always going to be bubbles (as they are a byproduct of market systems and human behavior). The key to optimal policy is to identify them and deflate them slowly (or in a more orderly fashion).

    But i did not make any claims pertaining to the "numbers". So it is your responsibility to support/source your claims.

    Obviously your book smart attitude ignored basic research ability and if you spent more time looking at actual data instead of what economists tell you, you might gain some credibility.
    My "book smart attitude" has nothing to do with the topic at hand, nor have i displayed any sort of inapt ability to researching data. The fact you feel the need to consistently attack me, and not the basis of my statements confirms my original suspicions.

    Yours confirms my orginal suspicions about you as well. When the numbers are posted you ignore them just like you did with the ones showing GDP, Govt. Revenue, and job creation AFTER the Reagan and Bush tax cuts thus refuting the statement that tax cuts cause deficits.

    BLS.gov will show you 15.26 million unemployed people or 255 thousand more than last month, 1.2 million discouraged workers which means that 3 out of the four months of this year the discouraged workers is over a million which has never happened in modern history. BLS will show you by age group where the unemployment is and by industry as well. I don't blame you from going and researching the site
