Commentary from Louis Lataif, dean of the Boston University School of Management

"The federal government is willing to spend trillions to right the economy. The $787 billion stimulus bill, including in its 1,100 pages thousands of programs unrelated to the home mortgage crisis or the constrained capital markets, is rationalized as necessary to jump-start the economy. That is like administering expensive blood transfusions rather than closing a significant wound."  (Reprinted with permission)
