    I say we wait about 5 years.

    The economic failure in 2008 occurred in less than a year, recovery always takes much longer.

    The only important issue is that our GDP will remain the strongest on the global front when the dust settles.

    Can you elaborate on that a bit please. Are you saying that the stimulus helped with GDP, and was positive, or simply that our economy will recover and be stronger than any other, or something else entirely?

    His post is completely irrelevant to this thread.

    No, actually, I am saying that if we remain number one in GDP and don't fall behind in economic output and quality of life, I'll consider it a success.

    So you need to pollute your own thread with caustic irrelevance from another thread. At least you are consistent.

    The bold red is a redundancy. Economic output and GDP are the same measure

    Of course, you already knew that and it is irrelevant
    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.

    OK, do you have anything else you need to say?

    I did not need to say anything. Just pointing out your errors in regards to the subject matter.

    The stimulus helped (although a larger stimulus would have been optimal yet impossible given the politics displayed by the party of no).
    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.
