Taking money out of the system, and then the fact that the beauracracy of the government sucks up a large precentage, then to put whats left into fake economic projects.
That just delays the real recovery
I see it as proof that the economy was slow.
Why would they keep it in a bad investment if there was another option.
The question is...
Is the recession natural or artificial.
Is that really the question?
Sustained growth cannot be maintained. Therefore, every economy will have peaks/valleys. The key is to limit the time and depth of the valleys. The current administration hasn't done that. Consumer confidence is low and government spending is high. People see what happens overseas and we want to believe it can't happen here. But, sadly, it can. There is no end in sight because government spending won't/can't be cut. Too many special interests.
