Conversations on the Ongoing Economic Stimulus Package
From Baruch DML
The Baruch Business Report offers a conversation on the ongoing economic stimulus package between John Elliott, the Dean of Baruch's Zicklin School of Business, and Terrence Martell, Saxe professor of Finance and International Business in Baruch's Zicklin School of Business. Many months after the beginning of the economic crisis, the house has just passed the over 800 billion dollars economic stimulus package, and the senator has begun its deliberations. In this context, Dean Elliott and Professor Martell talked about the various pieces of the package, how the various types of spending have more or less consequence for stimulus, and the tradeoffs between the tax cut, transfer payment, and the investment infrastructure. The conversation takes place on January 30, 2009.
