Rohatyn on Stimulus

Questions for Felix Rohatyn - The Builder - Interview -

"What do you make of President Obama’s $800-billion-plus stimulus package?

Rohatyn: I totally support Obama, but I would argue in favor of a greater amount of infrastructure investment and probably fewer tax cuts. There should be less concern about rapid liquidation and greater emphasis on long-term investments."
