ABSTRACT
The article reports that the 985.7 million U.S. dollars awarded to New Hampshire by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) enacted by U.S. President Barack Obama to facilitate the creation or retention of 16,000 jobs, resulted in the creation of 845 full-time jobs as of December 31, 2011. Most of the funds were used by New Hampshire's state government to balance a growing balance deficit, going to jobs that were already filled or unlikely to disappear.
