We were talking about this in my U.S. History class today and I was just wondering, How much control Does the Presidency have in controlling the U.S. Economy? Is the presidency unfairly judged based on the economic spectrum that he has little or no control over? Does anyone know anything in past history where a U.S. presidents economic policy had a positive/negative or no effect at all on the economy? I would like to learn more about this subject so if a discussion could occur on this subject i would appreciate it. Any links to good websites on this? Its because according to my teacher the president is unfairly judge on the state of the economy when he has little control over it. Too me because our economy runs on a confidence factor, the peoples confidence on the president is a primary factor on how they handle there economic decisions. thanks for listening to my rant!!!
