As we move through the campaign for President of the United States more and more of the candidates are releasing jobs plans. What exactly makes a jobs plan a jobs plan?
Unfortunately, not everyone agrees even on that much. The approach to forming a jobs plan incorporates one's perspectives on how the government should interact with the rest of our economy. For the most part the current Republican Party supports a very limited government intervention into the free market economy. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party believes in a more active in tackling the unemployment problem.
The reasons for these differing perspectives are tied to different assumptions about how the economy functions. The Republican Party believes that the most powerful force in the economic recovery is the uninhibited free market. The party as a whole and the candidates in particular range in how little intervention they support, but as a whole they all believe that a reduction in government will enable the market to grow on its own and spur job growth.
