The Economic Policy Institute, a non-partisan, economic/social think-tank wrote a publication on economic policies on issues that they believe would revive America's desperate economy:

The main issues they cover are:
- Healthcare
- Retirement
- Workers
- Infrastructure
- Manufacturing
- Poverty
- Work and Family
- Trade and Globalization

Take it as you will... but I think understanding the issues and the problems is a good step in the right direction.

Unfortunately economists do not make resource allocation decisions, the businessmen and the politicians do that, few of the latter are economists.

Nonetheless, a good list.

Health care and retirement are burdens, the variable linking the rest is productivity.

I think America just got itself good and "fixed"!

Unfortunately, I think it's just been neutered!
