ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's opinion that the U.S. economy is showing signs of improvement, particularly in the area of job creation. He argues that political pundits and skeptics have been overly pessimistic about the positive effect of the economic stimulus package and the U.S. Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Evidence of an economic recovery includes an expanding economic growth rate and Bureau of Labor Statistics showing job growth in the service sector.
