The article presents the author's comments on the U.S. economic conditions in recession, and the efforts being taken by the nation's government to stabilize the economy. The author states that attempts to rescue the economy by Washington and other political capitals have done little good and much harm. According to him, president Barack Obama's presidency is proving, on most economic fronts, to be just what he advertised during the campaign--a repudiation of Reaganism.
