What Happened to the $800 Billion Stimulus Money?
That is the question asked by Jonny Dymond to several people in Chicago for this story from yesterday's Business Daily on the BBC. The segment provides an interesting take on the lack of effectiveness of the Obama fiscal stimulus plan. What I find refreshing is that most of the interviewees seem to intuitively understand the vanity of Keynesian fiscal stimulus. Casey Mulligan, economist at the University of Chicago is particularly good. The union boss and Lapham-Hickey Steel president Bill Hickey are not so good.
