    You're hilarious. "inane" means pointless. Now ask yourself what your post had to do with the LA Times article, spending, or job creation, or if it refuted or even addressed anything in my post. J-mac, you're quite an entertainer.

    True or false: $1 of infrastructure spending via a federal fiscal stimulus creates more than $1.6 in GDP.

    I will also ask you to explain your answer
    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.

    $1 of consumer spending creates how much in GDP?

    $1 of spending will produce the greater good when spent by a consumer or by government?

    1 to 1.6, a pretty ratio

    LOL!

    Do you people realize, that if the Obama administration would have taken that $157 billion, split it up, and simply given it to the 3 million people who have lost their jobs since Obama took office, that would have given each of them $52,600 a piece... That's an entire years wages.

    .
    Dividing the stimulus money spent so far by the estimated number of jobs saved or created" is highly misleading because that calculation ignores the value of the work produced, only includes jobs produced to date from funds that will fuel work for months or years, and excludes indirect employment resulting from the stimulus.

    We don't talk about indirect employment when we talk about the market creating jobs, so why should we do it with government?

    And the money spent probably outvalues the work done.

    For reference, the drop we just took this past year was -3%. Oh, goody, maybe we can hit 20% unemployment and 2000 in the Dow.
    We need to get that Dow below when Reagan took over, so we can relive those pre-Reagan good times.

    Government can't create wealth. Just can't say that enough.
