http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601103&sid=axXSUijfeIbg Obama is proposing initiatives to help small businesses grow and hire new staff, spend money to modernize roads, railways, bridges and tunnels, airports and seaports and a new program to provide rebates for consumers who retrofit their homes to become more energy efficient, such as weatherization measures, a White House official said. The official didnât release further details. But to me this just seems like it will generate Jobs for people to operate tractors,forklifts,shovels,road work heavy machinery, caulking windows. This does not seem like those jobs pay more than 13-14 an hour. Digging holes and covering them back up does not seem like true productive use of capital. Aint that what the soviet union did?
