In his first month in office he has pushed through an unprecedented $787 billion economic stimulus package, announced plans to save the car industry, stabilise the stricken banking sector and stem the flood of home repossessions.I don't think Obama will be successful in any of these ventures. I think the stimulus as designed will fall flat, I think the car industry is not worth saving as it is today, I don't believe stabilizing zombie banks will resurrect the banking system, and I don't believe the housing plan as is will work (ESPECIALLY!!! allowing judges to rewrite loan agreements).
I don't think Senator McCain would be doing much better. There's not a way to run these macro experiments in an alternative universe, but the universe we're heading towards is troublesome. I hope I am wrong about the prognosis by Team 奥巴马 , but I am worried we have the equivalent of 16th century theatre students doing groundbreaking brain surgery. Unfortunately, we are the patient.
