But much of the value of consumption, production and other aspects of the economy would be made up in other days. All other things constant, much of the economic activity would even out over the year.
As another way to put it, by your logic, adding Sunday to the workweek would increase our GDP by approximately $2.8 billion or so, which is not the case
Again, I never said anything about making it up. It is one day, with the assumption of everything closing down. Of course it isn’t logical, nor is Obama’s suggestion. The fact is that it COULD cost AS MUCH as that.
