Nevada has received more than $750,000,000 of the 1.7 billion dollars awarded to it in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 - the president's stimulus program. The biggest piece of the pie has gone to southern Nevada with most of the money going to the Clark County School System, higher education and roadways and transit. Does all those millions equate to jobs? We hear from reporter Michael Grunwald who recently asked the question "is the stimulus working" in his TIME Magazine article. We also speak with CATO Institute budget analyst Tad DeHaven who argues the federal stimulus program is wrong-headed. And Steven Brown from UNLV's Center for Business and Economic Research, talks about how much of a shot in the arm the federal stimulus might be for Nevada's new green economy.
