An economic analysis of the Obama fiscal stimulus plan. Remarkable for its even handedness - the work of professional economists not political operatives (what a nice change).
Here is the picture that says it all:
What is scary about this picture is that with or without stimulus, unemployment is not predicted to return to under 6% until 2012.
I think the question is not is it too much, but is it enough? As an economist I would like to see a bit more, but as a realist, I realize that getting it done politically is a challenge and there is no time to waste.
