Last year's failed stimulus was temporary, targeted, and timely.
A better plan (but not ideal from a supply-side or libertarian perspective) would be John Taylor's: permanent, pervasive, and predictable.
Obama's recently proposed plan appears to be helpful, hopeful, and humongous.
Critics fear it might end up being pointless, political, and pork-filled.
Larry Summers now calls for stimulus that is speedy, substantial, and sustained.
Some of his readers think Obama's plan will end up being:
- big, bloated, and borrowed
- immodest, immoral, and imbecilic
- clumsy, corrupt, and counterproductive
- expansive, extensive, and expensive
- weighty, worrisome, and wayward
- politicized, pandered, and pathetic
- socialized, silly, and sorry
- random, record-setting, and ridiculed
- ultimate utilitarian utopianism
- absolutely abjectly apocalyptic.
