The article examines the effectiveness of the 787 billion U.S. dollar stimulus package to boost the U.S. economy. It is anticipated the stimulus package will create or save 3.5 million jobs, but it would be difficult to gauge its effectiveness as it involves estimating what would have happened without legislation. The measures being used include economic modeling and direct reporting and the current administration is expected to issue more guidance on counting stimulus jobs.
