What's to agree?
The article says that several programs, NOT the stimulus bill, are cited by various unnamed economists as boosting the economy 3.3%-ish this past quarter (what percentage is it truly if it's "3.3% when multiplied annually"? ...1/4 of 3.3% = .8% ... not very impressive ... hmm.)
The article also says that stimulus $$ is just beginning to trickle into the economy ...
And there's this:
"Dave Anderson, chief financial officer of Honeywell Inc., said the stimulus package actually froze business activity ... The $787 billion package "created actually a slowdown in order activity in terms of the flow that we would normally have anticipated," ...
So, what's to agree or disagree with ... whether these various economists said what the article says they said??
