I haven't seen the actual report, so their numbers might be bad, but I found this interesting:
"Taxpayers real cost for cash-for-clunkers"
Note that this is an incentive program for getting old, inefficient cars off the road.
What were the goals behind the program? That is, what were the benefits that gov't was seeking to achieve?
We have an estimate of the average cost here... what would we need to complete the analysis?
UPDATE: It seems that the White House is not too happy about the report.
