Bush’s record in historical perspective
Bush’s 8 years was characterized by slow job growth. Paul Krugman likes to call it “jobless recovery” from 2001 recession and 9/11.
In terms of GDP growth, Bush years were the worst after WWII.
In the area of disposable personal income growth, Bush’s record was not that bad: It’s better than Truman and his father and at par with Eisenhower.
