27. Probably not . . .

 

But you could gradually increase the money available for government construction projects to get some of the construction industry (one of the hardest hit) back on its feet.

Also you could do the same thing for other government employers: park rangers, cops, teachers, firefighters etc. You likely won't find enough qualified/interested unemployed people for a modern hoover dam project to have much of an economic project.

But steady expansions of many kinds of jobs over the entire nation might put enough people back to work to have an impact.
