    Anyway, public works projects are temporary and worthless for good growth.
    But, if they are done by the private sector it doesn't cost anything at all. For example the bridge in Detroit, U.S. to Canada. The private sector wants to build it. They already own the other Detroit to Canada one. But the government is screwing it all up. Just think how much money he could collect in tolls. And no price controls. Free enterprise.

    So we agree government doesnt have its own money.....it only has what it takes from the Private Sector--The Host Organism and Job Engine.

    And if for instance you believe that the Obama PORKULUS boondoggle did create jobs.....at $278,000 per job.........thats $278,000 dollars removed from the private market and the Job Engine......

    ....it would be apparent you see the 1 Government job (Temporary work/postponed unemployment).....but fail to see the numerous private sector jobs that were destroyed in the process.

    Reagan did many things which were intended to heal the economy, but that wasn't one of them. He did that for the sake of national security, at the expense of the economy. The fact that the economy improved so much is amazing, but it's even more amazing when you consider the fact that we were working on an even bigger problem at the same time, which made it twice as hard to fix the economy.

    Yes, the question is for how long? Take construction jobs, once done so is the job. Jobs created by the govt through stimulas are more likely to be short term. How does the private contractor keep the additional employees after the govt. dollars runs out and unless the economy picks up to support them with additial private dollars for more jobs. Have you seen that with the past stimulas dollars that were just spent?

    Not on net, no they don't. If you destroy two and a half jobs to make one job, you haven't really "created jobs".
