Good question

"How long does the recession have to last before Keynesians admit they're wrong?"

Given that Keynesians' explanation for the failure of the stimulus is that it was too small, I think they will never admit failure.  Their position is therefore unfalsifiable (if the recession ends, it was because of the stimulus – if it doesn't end, it is because the stimulus was too small).

Remember this next time someone refers to economics as a "science."
