Can Anybody Explain What the Stimulus Actually Did?

The Recovery Act was designed to target economic production over job creation. Today quarterly GDP growth is 5.7%, and the unemployment rate is 9.7%. So, naturally, the stimulus being judged for its failure to create jobs rather than credited for boosting economic production. Why?

Ezra Klein argues the administration has struggled to explain the stimulus because the stimulus' purpose has been shifting: it's about production! no, infrastructure! no, jobs! demand! and so forth. There are other reasons why the administration has slogged through economic PR...

First, 10 percent unemployment would hurt any administration's economic message -- period/the end/full stop. Second, first point notwithstanding, the administration badly underestimated the impact the recession would have on joblessness. The CEA warned in early 2009 that unemployment would hover around 9 percent without the stimulus; with the stimulus, it passed 10 percent. This miscalculation hurt the White House last year by keeping them from calling for a larger, more job-oriented, stimulus, and it continues to plague the administration by undercutting its authority on job creation and the economy this year.

Third even the new organizations considered objective and mainstream have struggled to explain the stimulus and its frustrations. I think the fine reporters at The Washington Post mislede with sentences like this:


The giant economic stimulus package enacted a year ago has helped stabilize the economy but has not made much of a dent in the nation's vast unemployment.

The Obama administration is acknowledging that its program of spending cuts and tax breaks has yet to ease joblessness, and White House officials are increasingly engaged in shaping the details of new legislation to boost job creation.

I guess it depends what you understand by "made much of a dent" and "yet to ease." It doesn't really matter who you listen to about the job creation numbers -- the administration says about two million jobs "created or saved," others say much fewer, I think it's at least hundreds of thousands -- but it's clear the stimulus bill made a dent in unemployment numbers and eased the jobless rate. No, it obviously hasn't stopped U1 from climbing to 10 percent. But how can we know that 10 percent is not a dented, or eased, unemployment figure? There is no parallel universe in which we can play out a no-stimulus (or Republican stimulus) scenario for the last twelve months. I know what WaPo is trying to say -- and I think Alec MacGillis is a particularly great reporter -- but even seemingly anodyne sentences like this make the stimulus appear to have been a total wash for jobs; yet I don't know any nonpartisan sources who would agree with that interpretation.

You remember the Reagan era, when Ronald Reagan was President, and Bob Hope and Johnny Cash were still with us? Well, now we have Obama, no hope, and no cash.

Signs of an Obama Clunker

• You have to reset the car clock after you use the cigarette lighter.


• You just roll down the car windows for air conditioning.

• You go to Coin Star so you can make your car and insurance payments.

• You start using the phrase "General Motors" as a curse.

• You start referring to GM as Government Motors.

• You keep emergency sneakers in the car trunk for those inevitable walks home.

• Your Obama clunker appears on the TV series Operation Repo, with a recurring role.

• You had to cut the Club the Obama clunker came with off of the steering wheel.

• You have to read map directions using the car's Check Engine light.

• You spot tow trucks following your Obama clunker on the highway.

• You double your car's Blue Book value whenever you fill the gas tank.

• Your car insurance policy requires that you wear a helmet while driving.

• You always carry duct tape in the car's glove compartment.

• You have a bumper sticker for the local homeless shelter.

• Your car radio only gets National Public Radio.

• When hitchhikers see you, they put their thumbs down.

• If you try to donate your car to charity, they give it right back.

• Your car was featured on the cover of Lemon Law Magazine.

• If they can't repair your clunker's brakes, they'll make your horn louder.

• The tires keep getting rotated until they're back where they started.

• You'll have to buy your car insurance from the federal government.

• But your Obama auto insurance will cover you in all 57 states.

• Your automobile insurance won't cover the types of accidents you're most likely to have.

• The longer you own your Obama clunker, your vehicle's insurance coverage will go down and your insurance premiums will go up.

• Car insurance premiums for everyone, regardless of risk, must be equal.

• Your employer must provide you with group car insurance.

• Preventive care, such as car washes, must be covered in your car insurance.

• The government must provide car insurance to everyone who is unable to afford the increasing premiums for car insurance. This will be done by raising taxes on drivers who don't have accidents.

• The bad news is that if you don't buy car insurance coverage, you will go to federal prison. The good news is that you won't need a car there.

• Don't even think about taking a tax write off for donating your car to charity.

The Ant and the Grasshopper

OLD VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


MODERN VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

CBS, NBC , MSNBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.'

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film
the group singing, "We shall overcome." Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper's plight.

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by theGovernment Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle,
once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.


MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.
