Is the economy really that bad?

Is the economy really that bad?

There he goes again.

Newsweek columnist Robert Samuelson has resorted to the despicable tactic of trying to confuse people with the facts. He writes about the economy for Newsweek and The Washington Post, and he's trying to calm people down just a bit. Unfortunately, that's an impossibility in an election year.

Nonetheless, Samuelson reports that much the public concern about the economy not only is overwrought but wrong.

Of course, try telling that to someone who can't put gas in the car or is worried about losing a job. But most people, indeed the great majority, aren't in that position.

But don't take my word for what he say. Read it for yourself.
