Turnaround Techniques

David Frum puts forward some ideas on how to turn around the employment picture:
1) Cheap money, a low dollar, and moderate inflation.

2) Tax relief aimed at stimulating private consumption, such as a big payroll tax holiday.

3) Income support for people in need.

4) Modest and temporary subsidies to state building projects.

5) An immigration moratorium.

6) Agreement now on a plan to balance federal budget to begin only after such time as unemployment declines below 8% or the 10-year US Treasury bond goes north of 5%.
