Roubini Too "Tied up" to Discuss Unemployment at Length

Jon Stewart of The Daily Show looks back at the original unemployment projections offered by the Obama White House and where we’ve actually ended up. The short version: it was way off. The worst case scenario — meant to be staved off by stimulus — is where the nation actually ended up.

He also examines fierce arguments, from both sides of the aisle, about cutting off unemployment benefits. Stewart turns to a special guest tie-breaker who only gets a word in edgewise before being hung out to dry.

See the clip below, which came to our attention by way of a “ketchup-packet soup” train post on The Mess That Greenspan Made.
