ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the challenges and difficulties faced by the U.S. economy in attempting to recover from the recession in 2008-2009. It questions the possibility of the unemployment rate to decline as well as the potential of various banks to start lending at reasonable levels for productive purposes. It also further questions the level of housing market to start stabilizing and the fall off of foreclosures, as well as the possibility of the economic upswing to be sustained. It discusses the implication of debates over public investment and industrial policy and the job creation in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and beyond.
