Customer-spending is the only thing that will make a company hire or lay-off.
Our stimulus was a negotiated compromise. None of the Republican part increased our private sector jobs. All of the Democrat part did.
The Republican tax-breaks above our middle, corporate tax-breaks, and corporate subsidies did not increase our private sector jobs. None of that increased the customer-spending in our economy.
The Democratic tax-breaks from our middle down to our bottom and increased infrastructure spending did increase our private sector jobs. All of that increased the customer-spending in our economy.
Keep in mind, none of that stimulus decreased our private sector jobs.
The job cuts our state governments did was the only thing our government did that caused massive job loss in our private sector. Those government job cuts deepened our bottom and increased how long it would take us to recover.
One last thing: If what our government does, does not increase the customer-spending in our economy, what it did will not increase our private sector jobs.
Hopefully, the next time our economy cycles down we will remember that and the other things we learned in this down cycle so our recovery won't be anemic.
