White House report on stimulus is flawed, says Meltzer
Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy, says the unemployment rate is too high for statistics released by the White House Council of Economic Advisers to be convincing. The council reported last month that the stimulus package has raised employment by 2.5 to 3.6 million, but Meltzer believes there is a flaw in the model or procedure.
