How President Obama Turned A Great Recession Into A Growing Economy

Jason Furman: 5 Indicators That Show We Turned A Depression-Like Shock into A Six-Year Expansion

Seven years ago, Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, setting in motion the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Over the course of just a few months after taking office, President Obama worked to shore up the U.S. financial system, rescue the auto industry, and pass a Recovery Act and more than a dozen subsequent fiscal measures that provided vital support to families and businesses. Since the crisis, the President has taken continued steps–including Wall Street reform–to strengthen our economy and protect against future downturns.

Furman4

Our businesses have now created 13.1 million jobs over 66 straight months–the longest streak on record. The pace of job growth over the last three years has not been exceeded since 2000. The unemployment rate has fallen further and faster than economic forecasters predicted. Private domestic final purchases (a combination of the largest and most stable components of GDP) contracted as sharply at the start of the Great Recession as during the start of the Great Depression. But while economic output continued to contract for years into the 1930s, our economy returned to growth in 2009, as both personal consumption and business investment started to grow again.

Pete Souza: “‘Don’t make rabbit ears’, the President said to a group of students before taking a photo with them. Which of course some of them couldn’t resist doing. I especially love the girl with her arm wrapped around the President’s arm. The students were from an elementary school at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida.” Sept. 17, 2014
