    Thought this was an interesting article from Yale Economist Robert Shiller (Robert Shiller - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), comparing the GDP-based approach to stimulus today from the jobs-based approach from the stimulus following the Great Depression.

    Shiller took seriously my mocking Obama by saying he should hire all the unemployed as a Czar.

    And FDR was still an Epic Fail.
