An interview with Robert Barro, Professor of Economics at Harvard University, is presented. Barro thinks that the financial bailout policies were the only useful aspects of the recovery policies of U.S. President Barack Obama's administration. He also considers that an alternative deficit-financed stimulus package is a better policy because it does not entail all the waste associated with unproductive expenditure programs.
