Re: September unemployment is 9.8 percent
 
[quote=Schneed10;603130]But still, unemployment is at 9.8%, and if stimulus got a 2% improvement, that's still 7.8% unemployed. Historically very high. [B]There's just nothing any administration could ever do to keep us at the 4-5% we're used to.[/B][/quote]

I can understand nothing can keep us at 4-5% consistently, but wouldn't lowering the corporate tax rate be fairly effective in reducing unemployment?

Yes. Though that would aslo cause the federal deficit to get worse.

1/3 of the stimulus is tax breaks for corporations and consumers. [URL="http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/STIMULUS_FINAL_0217.html"]WJ has a really nice breakdown of where the money is going[/URL].

Avoid depression, get corporations hiring people and people spending money to stimulate the business cycle thus jump starting the economy.

The Keynesian[/B][/I]:
In a time of deep recession reducing the corporate tax-rate alone won't necessarily give corporations incentive to hire more. You want corporations spending money in hiring people and the best way to guarantee they do is to give them government contracts.

The Monetarist[/B][/I]:
Government should give corporations tax cuts and expand the money supply (print money and lend it on the cheap), and then get out of the way.

Do nothing. The problem will self-correct.

[quote=firstdown;603274]I keep hearing Obama has created jobs but no one can seem to point to any of these new jobs. If this is supose to be a stimulus then why have they only used 17% of the money. Maybe its a trickle down stimulus plan. I was against the stimulus but is your going to have a stimulus then have a stimulus.[/quote]

Well it follows that if 17% of the money has been spent, then only 17% (or so) of the jobs have been created.

It will take time.
