    Someone has to educate you people. The assumption in the OP are ridiculous. Apparently those in the saved/created jobs got tax free income, but never spent any money. That's retarded.

    Honestly though, many of you are beyond hope. Education can only come in this form if the one being educated wants to learn. That basically disqualifies most of you, including you who keeps arguing the stupid government jobs don't help the economy despite being smacked down a dozen times. You still make the same asinine argument suggesting you do not care about educating yourself. I can lead to you water. I can even force your head in. But I cannot make you drink.

    I haven't seen any "jobs" program, except giving our Treasury to banks and corporations and no jobs. Trickle down has never worked and never will. Alternative energy has the potential to build jobs that will create local jobs in all areas of the country, but the government wants to keep helping the poor OIL billionaires. Like I stated, I haven't seen any jobs programs. You know, initiatives all over the country that start small enterprises. We can't export so stick with local jobs. Alternative/renewable energy renews jobs.

    You cannot teach a man what he thinks he already knows.

    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.

    Look harder. The small Business admin has been ramping up loans.

    Trickle down has never worked and never will.
    Reagan style individual no. Corporate does.

    Alternative energy has the potential to build jobs that will create local jobs in all areas of the country, but the government wants to keep helping the poor OIL billionaires.

    This I largely will agree with you. But we CAN generate jobs via exporting renewable tech.
