Bush recession different in size and substance
The President’s stimulus plan is, doubtless, far from perfect. But it has the support of the most brilliant economists we have, including the Nobel laureate Robert Krugman (whose chief concern is that it is far too small). Investing in the economy has the potential for paying the government back manyfold, even above the cost of borrowing.
And another ten thousand people will be bringing bad news home to their families.
Seems foolish to delay.
