Even Economists Wonder: Is this NOT a Recovery?

Here's a doubting Stiglitz.  W-shapes, anyone?

There's some good stuff in this June piece by Marshall Auerback on why our bank bonanza isn't an economic bonanza, and will never be.

And here's a piece by one of my Supply Sider Pals on the "Non-Stimulating Stimulus." He, being a supply sider and a Poverty Denier, thinks the non-stimulus is good, because all government spending is by definition bad.  But his data is interesting - only 12% of the stimulus is going into new purchases of goods and services.  This helps explain the non-stimulus.
