Economists on the Stimulus

The nice folks at the Booth School of Business (U Chicago) run a weekly expert poll (expert = hot shot economist) and put one item on the agenda. This week the panel was asked about the (1) initial effectiveness and (2) overall cost/benefit of the 2009 Obama/Bush economic stimulus. [You can find the results here.] As you'd expect, support hardly is unanimous or unqualified, but support for the program is remarkably strong nonetheless. And, unsurprisingly, all the Republican Presidential hopefuls have been running hard against the policy!
