i think it won't work. no matter what package, no matter how big. the economy cannot bail itself out and finally all the money the government has, is out of that very economy. BUT, if we are honest to ourselves, nobody KNOWS - we all, explicitly including me, are just GUESSING. after the fact somebody will have been proven right. inevitably. before the fact the story is different. truth is that the economy is too complex a thing to predict it. in pyhsics, as far as i know (an i am not a physicist), you cannot accurately calculate the gravitational effects between more than two objects. in economics you do not only have humans instead of objects, you actually have billions of them instead of two or three. this is the actual reason why everything seems to be chaotic. it is not that our best minds are unfortunately in phyiscs and not in economics. it is more the case that physics problems, including particle colliders, are very simple compared to the dynamics of the economy. i do not think the package(s) will do very much additional harm. the whole thing is already fu**ed. so let them all go ahead with it.
