Re: Historical Economic Grace Period?

No Rush:

Quote:
Employers slashed another 598,000 jobs off of U.S. payrolls in January, taking the unemployment rate up to 7.6%, according to the latest government reading on the nation's battered labor market.

The latest job loss is the worst since December 1974, and brings job losses to 1.8 million in just the last three months. It is worse than the forecast of a loss of 540,000 jobs from economists surveyed by Briefing.com

The rise in the unemployment rate was worse than the 7.5% rate economists expected. The unemployment rate is now at its highest level since September, 1992.

In a time of recession the government buying fuel efficient cars which save the government money in the long run from ailing car companies receiving bailout funds is a good thing. Two birds with one stone! Big revelation, are you ready for it? 66% of the stimulus bill is pork!


Is it just me or is economics really counter intuitive?

I hope they're spending the money wisely and efficiently. Like my old man says though, never gleefully perform self-amputation before consulting a doctor.

Thanks man, have a good weekend too.

If you're going to go with that statement then I'm going to go with "I don't see it doing much bad compared to doing nothing....so we do something."

Well if it fails then it is failing to the tune of around 850 billion so it can do bad. I'm not saying do nothing I just don't think you sit down and decide to spend that kind of money with a bill they are rushing through. Obama even said tonight this is just the first step so how much money is this going to cost and what are the other steps.
