    For those that are so sure (i.e. Paul Krugman) that we would have had more economic growth if the stimulus was bigger, can you give me some data that suggest increased government spending gave us more in GDP growth than the actual spending (and without a bubble). And I mean Post WWII, since the post war boom can be attributed to much more than stimulus (i.e. the entire world was destroying itself while we were building up our manufacturing and infrastructure).

    I want pure stimulus data, not the gains made from infrastructure, education, or the like.
