ABSTRACT
In this article the author criticizes the economic policy of U.S. President Barack Obama and his administration, citing the government's failure to decrease unemployment through the economic stimulus bill. The author argues that Obama has little ability to predict the course of the economy since only 8 percent of his cabinet have private sector business experience. He also discusses Obama's proposal for a $50 billion public works project.
