I know you're just a gimmick poster, but as far as the economy being better off; the Bush tax cuts in conjunction with the unfunded wars devastated the economy, as economists at the time said they would.
However, the policies of military Keynesianism may very well have propped up the economy for a time, prior to the collapse.
