The article focuses on the views of economists on the benefits of the share of the state of North Carolina from the U.S. federal stimulus package. According to most economists, the stimulus plan will help stabilize the state's economy through reduction in unemployment and mitigation of the effects of recession. Another advantage indicated is the effectiveness of tax cuts compared to government spending at spurring economic growth in the state.
