The article offers the views of several notable people in human resources (HR) regarding the condition of the U.S. economy. One solution to the crisis made by U.S. President Barack Obama is the stimulus package. It is inferred that not all states have taken it because of the strings attached and many of those that did take aid still have budget gaps. Paul Falcone, vice-president for employee relations at Time Warner Cable, believes that this wave of money will at least fix things temporarily.
