U.S. Domestic infrastructure spending by the Federal Government CAN assist pulling the economy out a recession in the medium-term perhaps, but NOT the short term. Consider the fact that small businesses in the U.S. have historically constituted a majority of new job creation in our economy. In our current ‘ jobless recovery ‘, realistically dealing with the solution in regard to the long term effects of the domestic residential housing market is the #1 issue in resolving the job creation / unemployment / underemployment problem. The Euro crises is a close second. Global financial market / currency coordination and short to medium term market regulations come in third place.
