5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading February 12, 2010
By Mattman
Format:Kindle Edition
Simply put, the annual Economic Report of the President (ERP) should be required reading for every U.S. citizen, every year. The ERP provides a wealth of information and data about the nation's economic activity. This type of information is perhaps no more critical than in times of economic downturn. Want to know more about employment trends? Housing construction? Trends in investment? Perspectives on the stimulus and what it actually did? It's all in here. Don't trust it? Well, fact-check it against analyses from the CBO or GAO, or other impartial sources - but don't just discard it.

But, of course, the ERP is more than just pure economic information. It's also a political document, and often contains the clearest statement of priorities for whichever administration is issuing it outside the State of the Union - and this is important too, regardless of whether or not you agree with the White House's current occupant. Oppose Obama? Read this, grapple with it, and better define for yourself which parts of Obama's agenda you really don't like - or which parts can serve as common ground. Support Obama? Read this and make sure you know what it is you like about his policy preferences - and which parts of his agenda might not jive with your expectations.

I realize it's a long report, and I also realize a lot of this stuff might be difficult reading. I'd just encourage folks to do their best with it.

One of the advantages of living in a liberal market democracy is the availability of information; I think it's important not to under-appreciate this fact. And if you don't make use of the information available to you as a citizen to make informed choices about who to support, you're just not doing your job.

5.0 out of 5 stars An informed citizenry is vital to a successful democracy February 12, 2010

Thank you Amazon for making the Economic Report and the U.S. Budget available free to Kindle users.
These two documents are essential resources for any citizen who wants the facts, not opinions or spins, about our economy and our Federal government.

What a great service. I love having access to a document like this that I likely would never have sought on my own.
