Where was it discredited? I don't see any text or quote on that, anywhere.Ramey is a "her" not a "him". Why do you think she was left off the list? Her study discredited Auerbach and Gorodnichenko's study saying "it worked".
It's irrelevant who linked it and you should know this, since the actual conclusions in the studies aren't affected by someone linking to them on the interwebs months/years later. Leaving out this one study doesn't change the reality.Is it possible that the author of this blog is biased? Please answer these two questions.
I'm not sure you even know that you agree with me more than disagree with me. The stimulus is consistently labeled a failure by many on the right. Not so in the vast majority of studies on the matter.I think the general consensus is that the stimulus moderately helped our economy for a relatively short period of time. Questions remain whether it actually prolonged the recovery or not. Also, questions remain regarding the long-term economic impact of adding $787B to our debt.
