Stimulus boondoggle: Los Angeles wants $7 billion for largely worthless projects (GOP stupidity)

See this list of "shovel-ready" projects on L.A.'s wish list for the stimulus plan: link. That's helped reify for me just how much of a boondoggle it's going to be. Find your own city here: usmayors.org/mainstreeteconomicrecovery

For one small example, $800,000 to retrofit lights on the L.A. River, when a) the current lights seem to be working just fine, b) few people go there at night unless they're heavily armed, c) it can probably be done for much less, and d) it would only employ six people.

While some of the other projects listed would employ large numbers of people, none of them appear to be critical, and no doubt many of them are as discretionary as the River project. And, no doubt there are other actions that would make even more economic sense, such as encouraging the formation of businesses and - especially - encouraging projects other than construction. Notably missing from that page is anything relating directly to technology or anything other than something that would benefit connected construction contractors. Those project aren't exactly going to turn L.A. into Silicon Valley South.

The projects would basically be a giveaway to those connected contractors and to unions, and both would return the favor by donating to those corrrupt politicians such as Antonio Villaraigosa who brought home the pork.

Speaking of which, some of those projects appear like the main beneficiaries would be foreign citizens who are here illegally, and some illegal aliens might receive jobs under the plan.

It's unfortunate that the Republican Party is too stupid and too corrupt to have pointed out things like the above.

UPDATE: It's also worth pointing out that a City Hall bureaucrat probably has much less of an ability to figure out the best way to stimulate the economy as compared to, say, a serial entrepreneur. The stimulus bill puts the decision in the hands of those who - leaving corruption aside - can only think of filling potholes rather than inventing pothole filling machines.

Also, I took the City's figures, rounded them off, and figured out how much each job was worth. See the following table. The "Total Cost" and "Number of Jobs" are as provided at the first link. The first column is Total Cost divided by Number of Jobs. The length of these jobs is not provided so, for instance, the first row in the table could reflect work taking place over a couple years and the last row could reflect work taking place over a month. Or, it could reflect a certain amount of "padding". Note also that many of the per job payouts are the same; that could reflect a formula they're using, or it could indicate them trying to reach some other goal, or it could indicate them just making things up.
