"The report elegantly reframes much of Mr. Obama's domestic agenda as microeconomic nudges in the direction of this overall macroeconomic rebalancing." -The Economist Barack Obama took the Oval Office amidst an economic downturn deeper and more painful than any the United States has known in generations. How will the President direct the rescuing and rebuilding of the U.S. economy in the wake of the Great Recession? What are the long-term fiscal challenges the U.S. faces? How can we reform health care without breaking the bank? What precautions can we take to prevent another similar collapse from occurring again in the future? Each year, the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers prepares a report presenting the Administration's domestic and international economic policies. The 2010 edition may be the most important such report in recent decades, as it lays out the blueprint for recovery that will impact all Americans, regardless of economic status. It is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the ongoing financial crisis and its potential solutions.
