Audacity of Help: Obama's Economic Plan and the Remaking of America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The United States confronts its greatest economic crisis since the 1930s. President Obama has taken quick and decisive action to enact an economic stimulus package strong enough to address problems of historic proportions. What does this new package mean for American families, businesses, investors, and taxpayers?

The Audacity of Help unrolls the blueprints and offers insights on how the economic stimulus package—as passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama—will affect healthcare, education, the environment, energy, taxes, and more. The book includes analysis of sectors and industries that will benefit, as well as those that will not. Wasik's conclusions are firmly grounded in a comprehensive and enlightening evaluation of the final economic package passed into law. Extensive study and interviews with experts from each economic sector support his analysis.

Book News Annotation:

No other President since Franklin Roosevelt has taken office in such dire economic conditions as Barack Obama. Not being able to enjoy the typical "honeymoon period" that most administrations get upon taking office, Obama has had to take bold measures to keep the country from economic collapse. This book offers an overview of the conditions and response taken by the Obama administration to shore up the economy. Event-by-event, program-by-program, Wasik offers summaries and explanations for people wanting to get a better grasp on what is happening and what resources have been put in place to respond to it. It is a good "everyman's" guide to details of the Obama's economic action plan. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
