Let’s see, how much have things changed? Robert Reich gives us a few hints.
Fiscal hawks and conservative supply siders notwithstanding, a major stimulus is in order. Government is the spender of last resort, and the nation is coming close to its last resort.
This state, BTW, has a bunch of bridges that need fixing and probably stand a few trains and/or other means of fixed guideway transportation here and there.
Also BTW, Reich’s book about the Clinton Administration Locked in the Cabinet is a non-stop laugh riot.
