Everyone who has taken an introductory economics course knows what the multiplier effect is. People still question the stimulus because it was a massive miss-allocation of taxpayer funds. Don't get me wrong, I'm not 100% opposed to the stimulus, but it wasn't implemented correctly. I wish we really had poured all that money into infrastructure. Unfortunately a lot of it went to porkbarrel spending while roads and bridges everywhere continue to fall apart.
