How do you fix the economy?

An interesting forward to fix the US economy ……

There was an article in the St. Petersburg Times newspaper last Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on “How Would You Fix The Economy?”

Here’s what one guy wrote back:

Dear Mr.President,

There are about 40 million people over the age of 50 in the work force. Pay each of them $1 million as severance with the following stipulations:

1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings – Unemployment fixed.

2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.

3) They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.

All this and it’s still cheaper than the “bailout”!
