Report January 2010
After unprecedented efforts by the Federal Reserve and Congress, and the adoption of “big government” policies, the financial system is more stable but the official unemployment level is 10.2 percent—and rising. According to the Institute’s latest Strategic Analysis, the nascent recovery is still very fragile, so a good policymaking strategy will require a clear assessment of US economic prospects over the medium term (i.e., six years).
