Obama recovery plan: thumbs up/down... and why?
I'm soliciting Fool Community input for a potential TV appearance of mine next week and I already got some very thoughtful responses to my first question. Here's my second (and final one):
What are your thoughts on President-elect Barack Obama’s economic recovery plan? Is this a plan that can realistically turn our economy around? Why/why not?
It is a political question at heart, but I'm hoping for the same quality of non-politicized answers. Yes, I realize politics runs through everything, in a sense, but as someone of a highly apolitical bent, I don't value highly polemic statements as much as I value intelligent observations and original thinking borne so often from freethinking (independent) viewpoints. All comers welcome below, of course -- just saying what I'm more likely to be influenced by. So whatever your political affiliation, I'd love to hear direct responses to the question at hand backing up any assertions with evidence. Thanks in advance, and Fool on. --David
