In my town streets are being re paved like never before. All across America the same scenario is playing out. We are stimulating the economy for asphalt makers, machine operators, laborers and the related jobs but those folks are not the true beneficiaries.
Who then you ask with great anticipation? It is very simple, sign makers. If the government is behind something you can be sure they will let you know, usually with a big orange or green sign giving credit to a government agency or a specific politician. It’s like they are spending their own money in dispensing such benevolence. I have it on good authority that if we limited the sign business, we would get the federal budget in good shape even before the first ten years after health care reform.
