Abstract Signs of recovery are everywhere: Housing prices have bottomed out, the stock market has rallied, and capital markets are growing. But has the recession ended? When President Obama took office in January 2009, people debated whether a sharp decline in economic activity would trigger more bank failures, culminating in a full-scale depression. Supporters of Obama's policies argue that they have restored confidence and improved the economy. Opponents, however, argue that his policies have increased the national debt and undermined long-term economic growth. Have President Obama's policies helped or hurt the U.S. economy?
