ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the economic recession in the U.S. and the economic stimulus package in response to the volatility. He refers to the temporary relief the package could give in response to the economic downturn in the country. He hopes that the bipartisan cooperation and agreement that created the package will serve as a model for addressing other challenges that may develop from the weakening economy.
