Poor Policy

Policies that didn’t help the economy recover from the Great Recession include tax credits for business investment and the first-time home buyer credit which didn’t exclude new homes as they incentivized new construction when there already was excess plant and an oversupply of vacant homes. The lesson; in recessions encourage households to spend on services, consumer goods and existing items with excessive inventories. Capital spending should be left to government.
