ABSTRACT
The article discusses the economic conditions of the United States and the effect of the $787 billion stimulus bill signed by U.S. President Barack Obama. Some liberal economists believe that another infusion of money is necessary to speed recovery, while conservatives argue that the package was ineffectual. Obama's promise on saving and creating jobs is evaluated along with rates of industrial production and the status of the automobile industry.
