Recession Over, Obama Takes Credit
JAMES JOYNER ·

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2009 ·

As widely expected, the Powers That Be have declared the recession over, while cautioning that the economy still has a long way to go.

And, of course, the Obama administration is crediting its stimulus packages for the good news.

In February, the Congressional Budget Office published its latest report on the "estimated impact" of the stimulus.

Although it had originally estimated the stimulus would cost $787 billion, CBO now says it will cost $831 billion.

In the second quarter of 2012, CBO estimates, somewhere between 200,000 to 1.2 million people have jobs they otherwise would not have were it not for the stimulus.

Assuming, optimistically, that the number is 1.2 million, that means each of those jobs cost taxpayers $692,500.

As time goes on, the maximum number of jobs sustained by Obama's stimulus will decline rapidly.

By the first quarter of 2013, it will sustain between 100,000 and 600,000 jobs, says CBO.

If it is 600,000, each of those jobs will have cost taxpayers $1,385,000.

By the fourth quarter of 2013, the maximum number of jobs it sustains will be 400,000 — at a cost to taxpayers of $2,077,500 per job.

It is true that Obama entered office in the midst of a deep recession.

But, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, that recession ended in June 2009, almost three years ago.

Dear Dr. Mankiw:

I noticed in the recently released Economic Report of the President that there was some consternation in the defining of manufacturing.

It could be inferred from your report that the administration is willing to recognize drink mixing,

hamburger garnishing,

French/freedom fry cooking,

and milk shake mixing to be vital components of our manufacturing sector.

.........

The education and health services sectors showed a net decline of 1,000 jobs,

and professional and business service jobs declined by 900 from February 2012 to February 2013.

.

On an optimistic note, manufacturing jobs increased by 700 during that same period, and trade,

.

transportation and utility jobs increased by 600.
