Blog for Iowa: Recession 101 in a right-to-work state: Business alone cannot save Iowa
Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
... Iowa, along with the rest of our nation, is in a deep economic
recession. And we are not recovering very fast. There are many
thoughts and theories as to how to stimulate our economy to recover.
Waiting for business and industry to bring jobs into Iowa is not going
to do the trick. Remember macro economics 101 says that stimulating
industry to create more supply when there is not the demand, is a
failing grade. Our governor and our president want to stimulate the
economy by creating jobs through new and existing infrastructure
projects. That will create demand for goods and services which in turn
creates additional supply. It is a simple theory. And it works!
