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.
This is nothing but a publicity stunt. What isn't being said is that Mc'D's hired 50,000 workers last April as well. They just compressed one months hiring into a single day for publicity, but that's all. Nothing to see here, folks. Move on.
