In 2003, the Internal Revenue Service began to mail out refund checks because of a change in the tax law. Economic  forecasters predicted that consumption and GDP would increase because of higher refunds on income taxes.  Pretend as if you are an economist and explain your thoughts on whether the tax cuts from the past few years have been  successful in promoting economic growth or in preventing a deeper decline? Are there other changes to fiscal policy that you  feel would have been more successful?

In the rural area of Northwest Tennessee, five major factories have closed their doors and ceased production, forcing hundreds of workers to draw unemployment benefits for survival.
