Leave it to the New York Times to remind us why prosperity is not just around the corner. And that’s regardless of whether or not the force-feeding of $6 trillion of Everything Bailouts into the US economy during the past 365 days causes the 2021 GDP stats to make up for the 2020 plunge brought on by the Virus Patrol.
We are referring to yesterday’s “leak” to the NYT presaging Sleepy Joe’s upcoming $3 trillion infrastructure plan and the following bolded sub-heading which heralded it:
A pair of proposals would invest in infrastructure, education, work force development and fighting climate change, with the aim of making the economy more productive.
And just in case the reader didn’t connect the dots to the “more productive” bit, the NYT thoughtfully provided a picture to explain.
