Besides, Yale is doing a good job for the economy by using their enormous endowment to offer scholarships to students who would otherwise be unable to afford tuition.

More important, however, would be a discussion of how, specifically, a president can actually affect economic conditions. I would argue there is little effect, because economic matters are congressionally shaped.

Wouldnt we be better off using our time to put American’s back to work in America so that our American economy will improve ?
