ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the one trillion dollar stimulus proposed by U.S. President-elect Barack Obama to help the economy. He believes that the amount offered could be unprecedented but the use for the money is typical. He comments on the proposed job creation and infrastructure improvements from the stimulus. The author suggests that whether or not the proposal passes, the U.S. will be left with more economic subordination to government regulation and more tax cuts.
