Robert Pollin, UMass Amherst economics professor and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI), says jobs in education and research have much lower start-up costs than those in fields such as construction. His comments come as part of the debate over whether the $15 billion federal jobs bill moving through Congress will create enough jobs to offset adding to the national debt. (USA Today, 2/25/10)
