How would YOU fix the economy?
There was an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday.
The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?"
Here is the BEST idea submitted thus far:
There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million a piece severance with three stipulations:
1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.
2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered - Auto
3) They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.
Done, done and done. Now, let's fix our health care and educational systems, then deal with immigration and the environment, then get out of Iraq and Afghanistan so we can finally deal with the Israeli-Palestinian . . . ahem . . . "peace process".
