the portrait of political incompetence, msm's from all around the country---BUSTED!
indeed, the stimulus was a staggeringly false step
I never believed the ARRA would bring this country out of it's economic decline, but I certainly do know it has had a positive impact on this nation's overall economy. I know plenty of people who were either able to retain their jobs or actually were able to find work as a direct result of stimulas money.
I did have a positive result despite all the negative spin the right tries to put on it. Now, it's true that Pres. Obama put his foot in his mouth when he made claims (or projections) that clearly didn't pan out, i.e., the unemployment rate would remain at or below 8% or that the stimulas would creat X-amount of jobs. Nonetheless, it has had positive results. Those who don't want to see it's positive net results no matter how small will simply choose to ignore them and no matter how hard you try to convince them otherwise, they simply will refuse to believe the statistics. So, why even try?
It's correct a lot more than you want to believe.Originally Posted by makeout hobo

Keynesian economics has its use, but just incredibly limited. Classical economics does not always fix its own messes, or sometimes takes far too long to be pushed along by the "invisible hand". Intervention is sometimes necessary. Granted, not in today's political and economic world, but in other times and places, yes.
That was it. It sounded like he believes that we're in a vegetable time, in which I would agree with him.Originally Posted by Dezaad
