ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the administration for U.S. President Barack Obama's use of economic forecasting statistics to promote its political agenda. The author states that beginning with a report by Christina Romer, chairwoman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers, and Jared Bernstein, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden's chief economist, the Obama administration disclosed statistics based on questionable methods in order to obtain support for the 2009 economic stimulus package.
