  •  What idiots expected a 4% unemployment rate... (2+ / 0-)

    ... 4 years after 2008? The jobless rate was going to rise to at least where it went after 2008 through 2010. Some analysts say the hit in 2008 was worse than the one in 1929 (which continued to determinate for years until FDR had time to get a handle on it). How economically ignorant do some people have to be to have expected our economy would be up and running fine after 4 years?

    Frankly, anyone who kept us out of a depression after that automatically starts with a passing grade and then you'd have to adjust it upwards from there over the 4 year span if you have an ounce of honesty and integrity. No A's from me, but a solid B. With a return to full on Keynseian economics such as we used from 1946 through the next decade and a half or so and we can have a A+ economy by 2016.
