I put together a chartbook with all the major metrics on the economy, such as GDP, employment, household wealth, personal income/savings, inflation, industrial production, capacity utilization, housing starts, etc, comparing the "pre-stimulus" period with the "post-stimulus" period. This should put to bed any questions about whether or not the stimulus worked. Feel free to use this as a resource when arguing with your friends, relatives and colleagues at work.
Here are two sample charts. Get the full chart book here: Mike Norman pre/post stimulus chartbook.
