A good way to stimulate the United States economy would be to put people to work fixing the nation’s bridges.  After that they could be put to work on dams, levees and water and sewerage systems.   It’s at least as likely to stimulate the economy as Quantitative Easing – buying up bad investments of the Wall Street banks – and, even if it doesn’t, we at least have safer bridges.
