    I wouldn't frame it even as a "step in the right direction for 'turning around' unemployment", but rather 'a grunting before you get up from your chair to take a step'. Now whether that step is to the can or to the garage to get tools is a worthy discussion.

    It's good for consultants, but it doesn't even begin to address the underlying housing finance crisis. I don't know how one legislates more sustainable buildings or more appropriate form for housing when nobody has any means to pay for homes, 'cause banks aren't lending outside of Federally guaranteed mortgages.
