With growth of jobs and the eco­nomy stag­nat­ing in the United States, how to ad­dress these in­ter­twined is­sues has been at the fore­front of the cam­paign to be­come the 2012 GOP pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ee. Al­though some of the can­did­ates’ po­s­i­tions are alike, in­clud­ing a dis­taste for taxes and fed­er­al reg­u­la­tions, there are some dif­fer­ences, al­beit subtle in some cases.

Be­low are some high­lights of the Re­pub­lic­an can­did­ates’ jobs and eco­nom­ic pro­pos­als, based on in­form­a­tion from the can­did­ates’ web­sites and Na­tion­al Journ­al art­icles. Al­though not com­pre­hens­ive sum­ma­tions of all of what they are pro­pos­ing, the list gives an idea of where each stands.
