It has been one year since U.S. President Barack Obama signed the $787-billion stimulus bill, the Recovery Act, to lift the U.S. out of recession, and threw an additional $50-billion lifeline to American homeowners facing foreclosure. The package was subsequently enriched and is now estimated at $862 billion, while the pledge to stem foreclosures has risen to $275 billion.

“One year later, thanks to the Recovery Act, we can stand here again and say that a second depression is no longer a possibility,” Obama said in marking the anniversary last week.

A White House advisory council forecast that the economy will create 95,000 jobs per month this year. For forecasters, the year is not off to a good start.
