What should Bill Clinton do first?

Dentzer, Susan
November 1992
U.S. News & World Report;11/2/92, Vol. 113 Issue 17, p52
Investigates Bill Clinton's plans for the economy and suggests there are two questions he might want to ask before picking among his jumble of proposals. Are we all Keynesians again: the logic of a stimulus package is debatable as is the billions added to the already overlarge deficit. What kind of investment is really needed: no evidence that throwing money at the infrastructure automatically spurs growth. Pondering the experiences of his predecessors.
