Economic Indicators: Saving Jobs and Trying Times

Friday, September 11, 2009

The White House announced this week that its $787 billion economic stimulus package has saved or created more than 1 million jobs since it was enacted in February. To help us parse these and other economic indicators, we talk with Lakshman Achuthan, managing director of the Economic Cycle Research Institute, a market analysis company in New York. We also speak with Louise Story, a Wall Street and finance reporter with the New York Times, about what financial troubles at Harvard and Yale mean for higher education and the economy as a whole.

Guests:

Lakshman Achuthan and Louise Story

This is a start, but with the economic damage that was done, there is a long ways to go. It is too bad that the Bush Administration did not start the efforts a year earlier. Even better, had we never unwould all of the regulations created in Roosevelt's time.

Had either occurred we would not have lost all of those jobs.

Whooptie do! They claim they have created 1 million jobs, too bad they're not taking responsibility for the millions more they have caused to be lost.
