My post compared the Great Recession to the only real precedent America has seen, which was the Great Depression.

But in reaction to the Great Depression, we had a gigantic influx of federal spending to supplement demand and, as fortune would have it, history's largest land war to stimulate the economy.

The only serious federal spending we've committed to following the Great Recession was four years ago, too tepid, and it was immediately followed by three times that amount in deficit reduction.
I'm referring to whatever downturn is now #3.
