54. The stimulus was sort of a joke. Every non ideological economist
said it wasn't enough and had too much in terms of tax breaks. What he did get right as a stimulus were rail, infrastructure, and cash for clunkers. It just wasn't enough of that and too much on the tax break side (which was already on the low side and was not a drag on the economy).
