ABSTRACT
The article focuses on ways to offset the U.S. deficit as the U.S. tries to recover from the 2008-2009 financial crisis. The article points out that U.S. President-elect Barack Obama may want to spend up to 25% of the gross domestic product (GDP) for recovery when the tax system only collects 18%. Ideas for increasing taxes and cutting spending to raise the GDP are presented, including investments in infrastructure and carbon and gasoline taxes.
