    "There is no evidence that huge inflow of money into the system basically worked," Greenspan said in a live interview.

    "It obviously had some effect on the exchange rate and the exchange rate was a critical issue in export expansion," he said. "Aside from that, I am ill-aware of anything that really worked. Not only QE2 but QE1."

    There is a county road a few miles from my house that is being repaved--for the third time in 10 years. I call it 'make work.'

    Signs are prominently posted proclaiming:

    Funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    Studded tires legal in your state? Around here 3 years is enough to destroy a freeway where traffic is heavy. Cars with rubber tires couldn't wear out a freeway in 10,000 years.
