Obama and lessons from Hopkins vs Ickes

Charlie Peters and Tim Noah on Hopkin's CWA vs Ickes PWA in creating jobs.

Obama's bet on contractors like Ickes and I fear it's not for the sake of good government but for binding a political alliance Richie Daley style. Hopkins wanted jobs quick and I suspect the best today would have been a FICA tax holiday for a year to get money into working peoples hands fast.
