The US is currently facing its greatest economic crisis since the 1930s. President Obama has taken quick and decisive action to enact an economic stimulus package strong enough to address problems of historic proportions. But what does this new package really mean for American families, businesses, investors, taxpayers, as well as an international audience? The Audacity of Helpunrolls the blueprints and offers insights on how the economic stimulus package - as passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama - will affect healthcare, education, the environment, energy, taxes and more. The book includes analysis of sectors and industries that stand to benefit, as well as those that will not. The author's conclusions are firmly grounded in a comprehensive and enlightened evaluation of the final economic package passed into law, and his analysis is underpinned by extensive research and interviews with experts from each of the relevant economic sectors.
