Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job

Quote:
When the Obama administration releases a report on the Friday before a long weekend, it’s clearly not trying to draw attention to the report’s contents. Sure enough, the “Seventh Quarterly Report” on the economic impact of the “stimulus,” released on Friday, July 1, provides further evidence that President Obama’s economic “stimulus” did very little, if anything, to stimulate the economy, and a whole lot to stimulate the debt.
Read the whole article. There is some evidence Obama's stimulus actually hurt growth. And before people say these are lies, this report came from the White House.

Depends on what you mean by 'stimulate'. There are plenty of liberals that went 'Divinyls' over the stimulus plan and will, to this day, refuse to acknowledge anything other than the reality that the stimulus created full employment, a budget surplus, and a new Cadillac in every garage.

Wait for the knee jerk reaction, Kaylore: It failed because...get this...it wasn't big enough.

I know. That's the "reason" every time liberalism fails. "Well it clearly wasn't liberal enough."

I actually don't even get the articles logic, but most economists, liberal or otherwise, said the stimulus was way too small to make much of a dent before it was even enacted (and also ended to early). Not to mention, 1/3 of the stimulus was actually tax cuts. I've said it 1 billion times, there's proof government intervention works in these cases, and its world war 2. Which was, economically speaking, a huge government stimulus program.

This has very little to do with "liberalism". It has more to do with the banksters running the country. See Inside Job if you haven't already.

Those were different times. We were largely a manufacturing country with a large manufacturing workforce. It's the reason wars don't help the country's economy like they used. Unfortunately an economic theory that worked 72 years ago, I'm sure you'll agree, at the very least has got to be updated.

Absolutely. And its sad we can't manufacture again, because we could be. I don't know what the answer is, other than its more radical than a weak stimulus or just cutting taxes again. However, i still do think, at its heart, the economic theory could work, but since we now function on a global economy, everything has to be tweaked to accomodate that.

Glad to see Kaylore has joined epicFAIL in the attention whoring on the main page. Poor fat guy was starting to get lonely.

We have a war, religion and politics forum for a reason. At least, I thought.

Not exactly numbers Obama is going to want repeated much. Call up your liberal buddies Obama, I am sure they will throw something on TV about global warming.

This thread will probably turn into something about how bad Bush JR was, how Reagan started all this BS, how Republicans only care about spending when it's a democract. What a giveaway the stimulus was. I hope some of you got in on that money because I don't know anyone who did. Well that isn't true I do know a couple of people who got to spend like 2 yrs on unemployment. Both could have been working faster but why do that when they give you a ton of extensions.

Well I agree with that. In some sense we have learned. I mean this second great depression is close to as bad as it was in the 30's but people aren't feeling it nearly as badly as they used to. And we have learned to not buy stocks on credit, and other such crap. I still am not enjoying the Zombie banks or the energy issues which are contributing to the inflation levels, though. Still with 20% underemployed, it's better than the 20% that were totally unemployed the last time this happened.

I post one political article and I'm attention whoring? My last four threads have been this, two on the lockout, and one asking what video games people liked and that makes me an attention whore?

Or is an attention whore anyone who makes Obama look bad with facts from his own administration?

Please let me know the rules so I can play better, k thx bi.

Just goes to show the economy is above Obama´s head and his admin. as well since he doesn´t have people around him that know any more then he does about it. Throwing money around and hoping something good happens is not a plan, but that seems to be the main idea democrats have and have had for years. Try something else.
