Obama's stimulus worked

Posted By on Wed, Feb 29, 2012 at 10:25 AM

Recommended reading in New York Times. The evidence mounts that the Obama stimulus package helped the U.S. economy. That hasn't stopped Republican howling, of course. It is howling silent on what the alternatives were — except for still more tax cuts. See Britain for how the government spending cut strategy worked. Not.

I'm still a Krugmanite. The failing was not enough stimulus.
