    c/c =$ 24,000 per car? I saw the math on that assertion. It was a lot of bull roar!

    While the pundits are jumping up & down over a backward looking GDP they ignored the 500+k newly unemployed which is forward looking number. The jobless rate now for young blacks is now around 40%, which isn't a good thing for the nation.

    Read your link. It has nothing to do with $24, 000 per clunker bur it does indicate a huge bump in GDP for thr third quarter which was expected.

    What the business insider story and the GDP figures show is that the CFC program was wildly successful in boosting car sales in Q3 far above what otherwise would have happened. In the process, the program depleted inventories of 2009 cars which were depressing the move to newer model cars. It is fully expected that sales will drop following the end of the program. The unknown is whether or not the acceleration of sales into Q3 will have beneficial effects in stimulating growth going forward. In the short term it appears to have done so given job recalls that have already happened. If the economy continues to grow at a 3.5-4% rate over the next year, I believe it will demonstrate a success of the stimulus program far beyond anything reasonably expected. If the economy fails to grow, it will indicate that the program basically failed.
