Three rules for Washington economy rescuers to live by:
“First, do no harm.” (Hippocratic oath for fiscal policy makers)
“It’s got to work, stupid.” (From Clinton’s “keep it simple, stupid”)
“Targeted, timely, and temporary.” (From Obama’s economic policy advisors)
I want to hear from you.
What specific items in the economic stimulus package wending its way through Washington would benefit small businesses and independent professionals? Why? How?
What elements of the package would not be helpful–or could hurt you?
No conservative or liberal rants, please. Be specific. Relate it to your situation.
Below are ideas and responses on this topic–starting with my answers to my own question.
