Summary, etc.:
"2010 marked the year when the National Bureau of Economic Research declared an end to the Great Recession. The economy had shed over six million jobs in 2008 and 2009, but few had been recalled to work by 2010. Today, government policies have yet to make a significant dent in unemployment. Here, Ravi Batra explores why this is the case. He explains how joblessness can be completely eliminated-- in just two years, and without the help of our painfully incompetent Congress." -- Provided by publisher.
