Barack Obama’s plans for economic recovery came under fire from critics and voters for failing to fully deliver, but having now been voted in for another term, will Obama offer up enough to lessen the economic hardship endured by millions of US citizens? Economist Jack Rasmus argues in this book that the weakest economic recovery since 1947 is the direct result of the Obama administration’s failure to take decisive action. Iwan Morgan finds much of interest for historians in this account, but is disappointed by the lack of a real grand plan from Rasmus for a broad and deep recovery.
